It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?
-- Henry David Thoreau


Tuesday, January 6, 1998


Whatever you undertake, do it with enthusiasm.

Almost anyone over age 30 would like to, in some ways, be younger again. And what is one of the primary attributes of youth? Enthusiasm! As time goes on, as we get older, somehow we get the notion that we should let go of our enthusiasm. That’s nonsense.

You want to feel young and energetic? Find something about which you can be enthusiastic. Enthusiasm will add a brilliant neon glow to all you do. Enthusiasm will carry you through difficult times. Your enthusiasm will push you forward and leave your competition choking in your dust.

Enthusiasm is irresistible. And fun, and joyful, and effective. Find a way to get there. It’s worth it!

— Ralph Marston
