If you want anything said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman.

Easier said than done

Taking consistent, persistent, focused action is easier said than done. Disciplining yourself to rise above the distractions and put forth meaningful effort, is easier said than done.

In fact, nearly everything you can think of is easier said than done. But just because something is difficult doesn’t mean it’s impossible.

Just because something is easier said than done, is no reason to give up on it or avoid taking action. Because there’s really no reason why you must make the easiest choice.

Much of the time, easy is overrated. Easy might appear nice from a distance, but when there’s too much ease in your life, there aren’t very many opportunities for fulfillment.

Many things in life are in fact extremely difficult to accomplish. Most of those things are very much worth the trouble.

Yes, it is indeed easier said than done. And that’s an excellent reason to step forward and do it.

— Ralph Marston
