A religious awakening which does not awaken the sleeper to love has roused him in vain.

Pay today’s price today

Here’s a quick, accessible way to improve every tomorrow. Stop putting things off.

Quit loading up tomorrow with the chores you can go ahead and do today. Don’t mortgage your time in the future to buy you a little bit of idle time today.

The days to come are certain to have their own new demands on your time. If you keep pushing yesterday’s and today’s demands into the future, you’ll soon be overwhelmed.

Right now you have the opportunity to avoid that fate. Right now you have the chance to make tomorrow a lot less demanding.

Make the choice to pay the price for now, now. Because right now that price is the lowest it will ever be.

Enable yourself to feel good about yourself tomorrow instead of disappointed. Do today’s work today, pay today’s price today, and greet the future with enthusiasm, with no need to catch up and no regrets.

— Ralph Marston
