Better to do it right

It’s tempting to compromise and take a shortcut. It’s better to do it right.

What’s the point of giving, when you give less than you’re capable of giving? If you’ve decided something is worth doing, then it’s worth doing in the best way you know how.

If you seek to cheat life, you end up cheating yourself. Choose instead to deliver more than you promise, and even if no one else notices, it is still worth all the effort.

Because one very important person will notice. That person is you.

Your own authentic perception of yourself is far more important to you than what anyone else thinks. Living with absolute integrity is what will raise that perception to its highest level.

Life is too precious and too full of positive possibilities to cheat yourself out of even a moment of it. You owe it to yourself to do it right.

— Ralph Marston
