Focus on the work

Don’t make your efforts more difficult than they have to be. Just make them happen.

Overthinking the task adds needless difficulty, complexity and delay. Undercommitting to the job makes it more difficult than it would otherwise be.

Simply determine what must be done and do it. Rise above whatever resistance you might create or encounter, and focus on the work.

Make it your intention to get yourself into a state of effectiveness. Embrace the opportunity to be useful, to do what’s meaningful, to create value.

Let go of doubt, resentment, excuses, and perfectionism. Continue to remind yourself the work is the thing you’re focused on, and you’re entirely capable of doing just that.

Expect to put forth effort and expect to do what’s necessary to make that effort count for something positive. Focus on the work and give rise to all the benefits of getting it done.

— Ralph Marston
