Seek first to understand and then to be understood.

Which way?

Where you are is not nearly as important as the direction you’re moving. No matter how far down you are, you can quickly turn around and head back up. You cannot instantly get to the top, but you can instantly be on your way.

Which way are you headed right now? Are you moving steadily toward an important goal? What will you do today to keep yourself moving that way?

Are the things you’re doing moving you toward where you want to be? If not, why in the world are you doing them? Do you really believe you can get somewhere by walking farther and farther away from it every day?

There’s something you can do today to keep yourself, or to get yourself moving toward exactly where you want to be. Do it! Every day you spend drifting away from your goals is a waste not only of that day, but also of the additional day it takes you to regain lost ground.

Know where you want to go. Get on track and stay on track. Keep yourself always moving forward.

— Ralph Marston
