I’ve been cleaning out my emails. I’m having a “Do It Now” mentality.
I recently came across a great email. I don’t know who the author is (it’s not me). I think it’s powerful. Consider it and ponder it.
The Habit Poem
“I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden. I will push you onward or drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command.
Half of the things you do you might as well turn to me and I will do them – quickly and correctly. I am easily managed – you must be firm with me. Show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons, I will do it automatically.
I am the servant of great people, and alas, of all failures as well. Those who are great, I have made great. Those who are failures, I have made failures. I am not a machine though. I work with the precision of a machine plus the intelligence of a person.
You may run me for profit or run me for ruin – it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you. Who am I? I am HABIT.”
I CAN DO…SO CAN YOU
