On a mission

If you’re not sure what you want to do, you won’t get anything useful done. If you fail to set a direction, all the energy, effort and skill in the world won’t get you anywhere.

Decide right now in specific detail what you will do with this day. You have the opportunity, so take it and make it into meaningful achievement.

Don’t agonize over constructing the perfect goal. Yes, make it mean something, make it desirable, make it realistic, but the important thing is, make it.

You’re highly experienced at doing what you’ve decided to do, at fulfilling your intentions. So give all that well-honed capability something good to do.

Don’t just stand around wondering what to do, or waiting for the next distraction. Put yourself on a mission.

Ask now, what exactly would you like to have accomplished by the end of the day? Envision it, commit to it, then enjoy the great feeling of using this day to get it done.

— Ralph Marston
