The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.
-- William James

Eventually you’re going to be interrupted. Until then, stay focused.

Don’t let yourself be interrupted by your own fear of being interrupted. Accept that the interruptions will come, and press forward undeterred by that eventuality.

Focus now, but not out of desperation. Focus now, and let that focus be powered by your love of making a difference.

Whatever it is you seek to do, life will at some point get in the way. But don’t let that possibility inhibit you, because you’re good at successfully dealing with the obstacles.

Even when you expect the best, unexpected events can knock you off track. Expect the best anyway, work toward it, and build a level of momentum that enables you to recover quickly.

You will be interrupted, and that’s okay. Because before the interruption comes, and after it quickly goes, you have good work to do.

— Ralph Marston
