You have inspired moments, times of mental exaltation, when you feel a sense of unlimited personal power. This is the time to notice your thoughts, and to put them in writing for actual use. Make a record of your new ideas, plans, purposes, ideals, and resolutions. The habit of putting these vital matters into writing will make them more definite and concrete, and serve to remind you of possible negligence.

Bear in mind that there is not a moment in which your character is not being shaped in one direction or another, and that your life is simply the product of repeated choices. Grandeur of character is the effect of many habits.

Know precisely what you want, start working toward it, and the best results will reward your diligence.
