Bigger opportunity

Effort that is not followed by more effort is largely wasted. Put forth the effort, then put forth more.

No, that doesn’t mean you must push yourself beyond exhaustion. Take a regular break and rest when you are weary, but be sure to put in plenty of productive time between the breaks.

Build something valuable. Then realize its full value by building on what you have built.

It’s great to be satisfied with what you’ve done. Just don’t become so consumed with satisfaction that you fail to do any more.

Success is more than just an occasional, isolated incident. Success is an attitude, a perspective, a way of being and doing over the long term.

When you’ve made some progress, that’s great. Now seize the bigger opportunity to make even more.

— Ralph Marston
