How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.

The hardest task

Pick the hardest task in front of you today. Tackle it first, with utmost focus, and persist until it is done.

Experience yourself in the process of being your best. Demonstrate to yourself how good you can be at doing what’s difficult, challenging, and meaningful.

Revel in the intoxicating feeling of being highly effective. Fill your awareness with the energy of achievement.

Then notice how your possibilities have expanded. Observe how the lame excuses have retreated into hiding.

Doing the difficult work brings valuable results, yet it also achieves something even more important. It creates a more enthusiastic, intentional, positive version of you.

That happens because you’re doing what you’re meant to do. You’re making a meaningful and beneficial difference in life.

— Ralph Marston
