Do the difficult stuff

Do the difficult stuff and do it sooner rather than later. That’s where adventure flourishes, that’s where fulfillment occurs.

You won’t find meaning in life by pondering it from a lofty, comfortable perch. Get up, get out, encounter life’s challenging realities and live the truth that existence is made of.

But isn’t life already difficult enough? Yes, and that’s precisely why you can gain so much by taking on the difficulties.

Identify the biggest challenge you face today and get to work on it as soon as possible. You’ll supply the rest of your day with some powerful, positive momentum.

Do the difficult work and you’ll be rewarded with even more difficult work. Resist the temptation to be resentful about that, and you position yourself for exponential growth.

Do the difficult stuff and do it well. See how much adventure and value you can pour into each day.

— Ralph Marston
