I am your constant companion.
I am your greatest asset or heaviest burden.
I will push you up to success or down to disappointment.
I am at your command.
Half the things you do might just as well be turned over to me,
For I can do them quickly, correctly, and profitably.
I am easily managed, just be firm with me.
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 and the intelligence of a person.
You can run me for profit, or you can run me for ruin.
Show me how you want it done. Educate me. Train me.
Lead me. Reward me.
And I will then...do it automatically.
I am your servant.
Who am I?
I am a habit.
Found this poem, the author is unknown, but I am determined to make some good life choices habits.
I am going to work at like I do my paid work. Setting measureable goals, collecting data and repeating what seems to work until it is 2nd nature.Some of the habits will be exercise, some eating and some staying organized.
I am going to use Sparkpeople to keep the statistics on the habits and those that fall below the expected range will get more concentration. Those that are at 100% for 6 weeks I will consider a habit established!!!!
