Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.

Step by step, task after task

Acknowledge where you are. That’s the first step.

Now ask yourself, what would be one small step in the direction of your goal? Take that step.

Now you’re on your way. Now you can keep going, one step at a time.

Don’t let yourself be stopped by imperfection, or indecision, fear or apprehension. Let go of the hesitation, let go of excuses, find another step to take, and take it.

Make the next phone call, write the next sentence, cut the next board, sort through the next box. Persist in your action, for it is that persistence that gets the work done.

This is the place to start and now is the time to do it. Step by step, task after task, you’ll get yourself where you intend to go.

— Ralph Marston
