Great minds have purposes, others have wishes.
-- Washington Irving

If you’re not sure what to do, go ahead and do something anyway. Action clarifies your purpose and illuminates your intentions.

If you’re unsure how to go about it, make an initial effort anyway, right away. Even if the first step doesn’t get you anywhere, it will give you valuable experience and perspective.

The secret to success is that no one really knows the secret. You learn to achieve as you go along, so get going, get the learning and achievement in motion.

If you already know how the story ends there’s no point in reading it, or writing it. If you already know how the achievement will unfold, you owe it to yourself to seek a more ambitious achievement.

Unsure what to do with this day, with the month ahead, or the rest of your life? The way to be sure is to invest in life, right now, with action.

Free yourself from uncertainty with action. Get involved, get yourself clear about what, why and how, and make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
