Get ahead

Do you want to get ahead? Then think ahead, plan ahead, prepare ahead and work ahead.

If you always wait until the last minute to get things done, it will soon catch up with you. Something unexpected will come along, and that last minute you were counting on will be unavailable.

Instead, when you get a few extra minutes, invest them in getting ahead. Work to do what must be done, well before it must be finished.

Then, when new opportunities appear you’ll have the time to make the most of them. Instead of being burdened by playing catch up, you’ll be free to move ahead.

Don’t be a slave to your own procrastination. Be the master of your own time and success and achievement.

The earlier you take action, the more effective your actions will be. Look ahead, act ahead, and enjoy the powerful benefits of truly getting ahead.

— Ralph Marston
