Habit: Friend or Foe?

Last Update: Mar 14, 2016


Either Or, it's a choice that sometimes we may not be aware of making, sometime in the past. In becoming a WA member and initiating lessons, I've made a few startling self discoveries. One of which is organization skills or lack there of in certain areas.

Such as filing and paperwork. It's everywhere and I took a little detour to tidy up a bit and get set to keep it that way. In doing so I ran across this snippet. Food for thought.

I am your constant companion,

I am your greatest helper or your heaviest burden.

I will push you onward or drag you down to failure,

I am completely at your command.

Half the things you do, you might just as well turn over to me

And I will be able to do them quickly and correctly.

I am easily managed; you must merely 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 all great men and women,

And, alas, of all failures as well.

Those who are great, I have made great.

Those of you who are failures, I have made failures.

I am not a machine, though I work with all the precision of a machine,

Plus the intelligence of a man.

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 put the world at your feet.

Be easy with me, and I will destroy you.

Who am I?

Thank you Sherry, you're welcome to do so' Think I'll do that myself.
Great advice by the way. Write on. Pun intended.

Very wise words...this would be great to print out and hang on the wall as a reminder to watch what we do as habits and whether they're making us become better or worse. Thanks for sharing!
Best wishes :) ~Sherry
