Life is a matter of luck, and the odds in favor of success are in no way enhanced by extreme caution.

Make the magic

It’s amazing what you can get done if you’ll just do the work. It’s amazing how much you can accomplish if you’ll keep working.

There are lots of ways to convince yourself and others that you’re busy when you’re not actually getting much done. There are plenty of diversions to pass the time that will leave you wondering where the time all went.

Something is magical, though, about putting in long, diligent, focused effort and having real value to show for it. Take the opportunity to avail yourself of that magic.

You have all sorts of powerful tools, so let yourself feel the incomparable satisfaction of putting them to productive use. You are skilled, knowledgeable, creative, and passionate, and you can find fulfillment in channeling those qualities.

You know from experience how good it feels to get useful work done. You also know how liberating and energizing it can be to finish a task that’s been hanging over your head.

So give yourself the priceless gift of doing the work and having it finished. Make the kind of magic in your life that only you can make.

— Ralph Marston
