This thing we call "failure" is not the falling down, but the staying down.

Start now and keep going

The work will take some time. But the time will pass whether you do the work or not.

The question you have to ask yourself is this. When the time has passed, would it be better to have the work done?

Of course it would, and sure, it will take a while. That’s a very good reason to get started right away.

You won’t be able to get all the work done immediately. Yet you can get some done today, some more tomorrow and the next day and the next.

And before long, what once seemed overwhelming will be done. Instead of wondering how you can possibly get it all finished, you’ll be enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Start now and keep going. Make the passing of time your ally and make achievement your thing.

— Ralph Marston
