It must be done

If a particular task must be done, it must be done. If a certain goal must be met, it must be met.

Work on finding a way and making it happen. Don’t tolerate excuses from yourself or anyone else.

Those excuses might indeed be valid. But they don’t change the necessity of effective action.

Rather than focusing on why you can’t, put in the work to figure out how you will. Consider all the alternatives, and if none of them will work, seek more.

Pinpoint precisely the necessary result and let it stimulate your creativity, your resourcefulness, your openness to new ideas and techniques. Assume there is a workable way forward and commit to whatever it takes.

Get yourself good and clear about why the result matters. Then do what’s necessary to make it happen.

— Ralph Marston
