This is the final test of a gentleman: his respect for those who can be of no possible value to him.

Get the job done

What if doing what’s hard is really not so hard? What if the main thing making it so difficult is your own resistance?

Imagine for a moment that you could just take the first step. And imagine your pleasant surprise at getting that first thing done.

Then picture yourself with some positive momentum. Think of the joy and sense of accomplishment you can be experiencing.

Suddenly you realize that all your excuses are just that, excuses. And you understand that you’re well-positioned to take action, to be effective, to get good things done.

And so that’s precisely what you do. Letting go of any judgment about what’s difficult and what’s not, you go ahead and get the job done.

You’ll wonder why you ever hesitated in the first place. And you’ll jump with great enthusiasm into whatever is next.

— Ralph Marston
