If you must tell me your opinions, tell me what you believe in. I have plenty of doubts of my own.

Opportunity of now

Today is not perfect yet it’s perfectly usable. What good results do you choose to create with it?

The temptation is strong to let important work slide another day, or two, or twenty. Imagine the power and positive consequence of saying no to that temptation.

Sometimes it’s easy to rationalize that the efforts you make won’t make much of a difference. Yet the moment you do act, the moment you do create value, that kind of thinking goes quickly away.

Life’s shallow, fleeting pleasures can be enjoyable for a moment. But they’re nothing compared to the deep, abiding joys that come from creating real value.

Right in front of you stretch precious, potent minutes and hours. You can work to mold them into meaningful and enduring achievements.

Reach inside and reinforce your connection with purpose. Embrace the opportunity of now and let its fulfillment unfold in all you do.

— Ralph Marston
