So do

You may not be able to get it perfect. Yet you absolutely are able to get it done, so do.

It may not be the most enjoyable or exciting way to spend your time. Still, it is what you must get done, so do.

It’s very possible that some people will criticize you for it, or even oppose your efforts. However, it is truly important to you that you make it happen, so do.

There may be a hundred perfectly reasonable excuses, and a thousand compelling distractions as well. Yet when you have a meaningful reason to make it happen, that trumps every excuse.

You may get weary and discouraged, and in your discouragement you might convince yourself that the effort is not worth the trouble. Rest for a little while, reconnect with your original purpose, then take a deep breath and keep on going.

You are absolutely capable of doing the work, and absolutely worthy of the achievement it will bring. Whatever may come, you can make the effort to make a difference, so do.
