Just start

A large orchard begins with a single sapling. Just start, and keep going.

A best-selling novel begins with the first sentence. Get yourself started, and keep yourself going.

It may be difficult, inconvenient, embarrassing, uncomfortable, frustrating to get started. Nevertheless, you can, and if your choice is to accomplish something, you must.

Your first effort won’t be perfect, and that’s all the more reason to make that effort right away. The more you do, the more you’ll learn, and the better you’ll get.

Put your shoes on, stand up, step forward, go out the door into the world, take action. The incomparable experience of achievement is yours to create, and this is when.

The pile of things to do will begin to shrink and the rewards you can claim will begin to increase. Just start, keep going, and fulfill that great potential you know is in you.

— Ralph Marston
