Who am I?

I post this poem by Sean Covey at least once a year to remind myself of its simple and practical truth..

WHO AM I?

 

 

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 I do you might 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 individuals and alas..

of all great 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 all the precision of a machine

plus the intelligence of a human.

 

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.

I am habit.

 

*Something to ponder- We all have daily habits.  Which one are you most proud of and which one is setting you back?
