To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

Do it again

It’s very quick and easy to pull one weed out of your garden. It’s so easy in fact that you can do it again, and again, until all the weeds are gone.

You have no problem staying focused and on task for a brief moment. By simply stringing those moments together you can get hours of highly effective work done.

You know you can do it once and that means you can do it again. Repeat a positive pattern enough times, and whatever success you desire can be yours.

Remind yourself it’s not a massive task that you face. It’s a small, easily approachable task that’s repeated again and again.

Persistence is not a long and drawn out effort. Persistence happens in a series of instants, by simply starting the next step when you’ve finished the current step.

You don’t need some superhuman effort to get good and valuable things done. You just have to take the next step, and then continue to do it again.

— Ralph Marston
