Taking consistent, persistent, focused action is easier said than done. Disciplining yourself to rise above the distractions and put forth meaningful effort, is easier said than done.

Just because something is easier said than done, is no reason to give up on it or avoid taking action. Because there’s really no reason why you must make the easiest choice. Everything is easier said than done. But just because something is difficult to do, doesn’t mean it is impossible.

In fact, the more difficult something is, the more valuable it is when you do in fact get it done. Instead of complaining that it’s easier said than done, put your energy into making it happen.

On the other side of great challenge is great reward. Work through the challenge, and get yourself to the reward.

Yes, that will take time, effort, commitment, decisiveness and persistence. And it will be worth all that and more.

The way to get it done is to start where you are, to keep going forward, and to constantly remind yourself why. Though it’s certainly not as easy as just saying you will, it is absolutely within your ability to make good and valuable things happen.

Act in accordance with the way you wish your life to be. Though it’s easy to say, it’s much, much better to do.


Time will pass no matter what. Give yourself something to show for it.

Give yourself some adventure, some achievement, some fellowship, learning, exhilaration, and other great moments of experience. Give yourself the benefit of working with discipline and focus to tackle a meaningful challenge.

Time moves forward, so get yourself moving forward with it. Make this day uniquely fulfilling, and then create even more fulfillment tomorrow.

You cannot go back and reclaim the hours, days and years that have already passed. Yet you can work to make the very most of every new moment that arrives.

Make time your friend by filling it with positive purpose as it arrives. Make time work for you by doing your best work with the time you have.

Time is filled with great promise and possibility. Claim all that value with purposeful, focused effort and lift your world higher as each moment passes.
