There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.

Lingering complications

Maybe the question or problem you’re faced with doesn’t have a good answer, or at least not one you can find right away. And maybe you can be okay with that.

Perhaps, despite all your best efforts, not everything gets resolved before the end of the day or end of the week. And maybe you can get a great night’s sleep, and have a delightful weekend, nonetheless.

Sure, it’s fine to get all the issues resolved, tied up in a nice, neat conclusion. But it’s not essential, and it rarely happens like that anyway.

You can live a great life for a long time, even with lingering complications and unanswered questions. Don’t put your life on hold waiting for all the problems to be solved.

Living a rich and joyous life does not prevent you from resolving the difficult issues. On the contrary, it helps you prioritize things and discover effective ways to deal with them.

Work diligently to solve the problems, to get the answers. While you do, live well, gently refusing to let anything keep you down.

— Ralph Marston
