The best medicine for discontent and discouragement is useful occupation. You are in the world to make something of yourself, to develop your powers and abilities for worthy use, and to render substantial service to your fellow men.

A well-planned life has no room or need for useless worry and dissatisfaction. Every minute of the day is significant to earnest and ambitious workers. Life is rich with opportunityand you decide each day whether you will be productive or not.

Plan a schedule of useful work for each day, fill up the hours with interesting tasks, resolve to constantly do better, and your life will steadily expand into beauty and joyousness.
