Take it easy -- but take it.
-- Woody Guthrie

Gather together all the wisdom you have gained, and resolve to put it to good use. Wrap your thoughts around all that matters in life, and begin.

For the first time, for the tenth time, for the two thousand and sixteenth time, begin to do what you know you must do. Climb over the obstacles, sit astride the challenges, harness the power of passion, and go forward into the future.

Things are not perfect, but that has never stopped you. Life can be confusing, yet as you step confidently ahead you know you can figure out what to do next.

Your dreams call to you, and your goals for this day, this month, this year urge you on. Begin, quickly, decisively, and give yourself the advantage of putting time in your favor.

By now you’ve officially outgrown the flimsy excuses and shiny distractions. Be strong, and begin.

You’ve seen time pass and you know what you can do with it. Begin, and make the time ahead the best time ever.

— Ralph Marston
