To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.

Get it done now

Now is when you can avoid falling further behind. Now is when you can act to get out in front of your life.

It will take just as much effort to do it later as it will take to do it now. So go ahead and get it done, now.

The closer you get to the deadline, the more you’ll be weighed down with anxiety. Now, while you can calmly focus without being frantic, take action, be effective.

If you’d like to relax and enjoy yourself, great. Get the work done now, and then you can truly relax, knowing it’s all finished.

Work yourself to a place where you can feel the satisfaction of being well out ahead of whatever you must do. Rather than waiting until later, get it done now.

Decide to live on your own terms instead of being under a quickly approaching deadline. Take action, take control, get it done, now.

— Ralph Marston
