Good work to do

You’ll find great satisfaction in assessing what exists, what’s available, and improving upon it. You’re able to render a wide variety of objects and situations more beautiful, more useful, more accessible, understandable, and enjoyable.

Not everything is in need of such transformation. Yet there’s always something in your world that is.

You have the opportunity to appreciate and to be thankful for all the goodness that surrounds you. And on top of that, each day you have the opportunity to refine and expand on that goodness.

What’s broken can be made to work again. What exists only as a good idea can be brought into beneficial reality.

What’s already valuable, you can make even more valuable. What’s been lost, tarnished, or underappreciated, you can bring back to prominence, beauty, and usefulness.

The opportunities are many, and they’re all around. Seek to humbly make something better with your attention and effort, and you’ll have no shortage of good work to do.

— Ralph Marston
