The biggest fool in the world is he who merely does his work supremely well, without attending to appearance.

Choose it before you need it

Transform your needs into choices. See your actions as being driven by your choices, not controlled by your needs.

Instead of needing to wake up at six in the morning, choose to wake up ten minutes earlier. Instead of needing to keep your job, choose to build your career.

Whether something is a need or a choice may not make much difference in your actual behavior. But it can make all the difference in the world when it comes to your energy level.

When you need to do it you can tend to resent it and procrastinate. When you choose to do it you’ll be eager and enthusiastic about getting it done.

Perception plays a major role in the way you feel about what you’re doing. So give yourself the benefit of a positive perception.

Get out in front of what must be done. Choose it before you need it and make it a positive, effective, productive endeavor.

— Ralph Marston
