Wherever the ways of man are gentle, there is commerce, and wherever there is commerce, the ways of men are gentle.

Work on it

How do you transform a pile of rocks into a magnificent castle? You work on it.

How do you transform a rough idea for a story into a blockbuster motion picture? You work on it.

Your life and your world are filled with untapped potential. Turning that potential into value is a matter of time, intention, focus, and effort.

Achievement is relatively rare. Yet the raw materials for it are so abundant you cannot avoid encountering them.

The path from what’s commonly available to what’s highly desirable goes through you and others like you. There’s a whole world of physical reality, ideas, needs, concepts, energy, techniques, and much more to work with.

Value is created by effort. Think of all you can do right here, right now, to make some.

— Ralph Marston
