How great it feels

This is a day to get things done. Make a list, and get started checking off the items as you complete them.

The most effective power you can have is power over your own actions. Instead of hoping or plotting to gain power over others, make use of the power you already have over yourself.

Identify a difficult situation and get to work untangling it. Choose a compelling possibility and make progress toward bringing it to life.

This is a dynamic moment that responds to your input. Put thoughtful, positive effort into it and you get valuable, meaningful rewards out of it.

Leave it to others to do the complaining, blaming, fretting and worrying. Focus your efforts on positive pursuits that will make a real difference.

The best way you can spend this day is in getting something accomplished. Get positive, get busy and truly enjoy how great it feels.

— Ralph Marston
