Take time to deliberate, but when the time for action has arrived, stop thinking and go in.

When you do it

The work will be done when you do it. The problem will be solved when you solve it.

The money will be yours when you earn it. The skill will be yours when you learn it.

It’s not magic that creates the good and desirable things in life. It is focused, committed, persistent effort.

If you want life to improve in some particular way, then do the improving, be the improver. Jump to your feet and make it happen.

Skip straight past the wishing, begging, agonizing, theorizing, and wondering when the situation will get better. Step up, take action, and keep at it until you get the results you’re after.

You know what makes a difference, what brings value to life, and you know you can do it. So go ahead, without further hesitation, and get it done.

— Ralph Marston
