The problem with communication ... is the illusion that it has been accomplished.

Limited time

There’s a limit to what you can do in one day. And that’s an excellent reason to do all you can do.

Because when you make full use of each day as it comes, the next day you begin from an improved position. Rather than being limited in what you could do, you benefit from all you have done.

Time moves steadily forward, and nothing you can do will stop that. What you can do is move forward with it.

When there’s not much time to work with, it’s easy to rationalize doing nothing. Yet even a small amount of time can make a difference.

Make good use of the time you have now and you’ll expand the options available later. Ten minutes of extra effort over the course of each day puts you more than an hour ahead by the end of the week.

If there’s no time to do a lot, then by all means do a little. Now is a great time to get yourself ahead.

— Ralph Marston
