If a man happens to find himself, he has a mansion which he can inhabit with dignity all the days of his life.

Getting started

Talk yourself into talking. Act yourself into action.

Write yourself into writing. Think yourself into thinking.

Whatever you need to do, or wish to do, start with whatever version of it is right here within reach. Get the ball rolling, establish some momentum, and then you can build on it.

Contrary to the widespread assumption, getting started is not hard. It’s deceptively easy.

Make a phone call, read a book, pick up a stack of papers, put on your socks. Right here, right now, is your opportunity to get started.

You’re already standing at the starting line. Now is when you can go.

— Ralph Marston
