Do it anyway

Though you won’t get it perfect, do it anyway. Though you don’t think you have the time, do it anyway. Though others may find fault and criticize, do it anyway.

Though you can think of a lot of reasons not to, do it anyway. Though you’ve been disappointed in the past, do it anyway. Though it will challenge you and make you a little uncomfortable, do it anyway. Though it will take some time and effort, do it anyway.

You know what must be done. You know what actions will bring you the results you desire. You know what is right and what is wrong. You can spend a lifetime making excuses, thinking of reasons why not, but where would that get you? Touch your own sense of excellence and do the right thing. Do what must be done. Do it anyway, in spite of all the excuses. Do it anyway. Make a difference. Get somewhere. Take yourself to the next level.

Do it anyway and you’ll be glad you did.

— Ralph Marston
