In any moment of decision the best thing you can do is the right thing. The worst thing you can do is nothing.

Renewed determination

Are you disappointed that you haven’t gotten more done by now? Feel the disappointment, and then transform it into inspiration.

You can’t travel backwards in time, so there’s no use wishing you could change what’s already happened. What you can do now is travel forward with renewed determination.

Remind yourself that it’s never too late to make a positive difference. Each dawning day delivers new opportunities to act, to achieve, to set things right, to move forward.

If you know you could have done more, now is your time to do it. Allow fresh, new energy to well up within you, and put that energy to immediate use.

Some time has already passed, yet more time is now becoming available. Make the choice to use that time wisely, productively, purposefully.

Let your past disappointment push you to act and to persist so that you won’t be disappointed again. You can get it done, and now is when.

— Ralph Marston
