The Habit Poem

Minteer Real Estate Team read a great poem about habit today and wanted to share it:

The Habit Poem

I am your constant companion.

I’m your greatest helper or heaviest burden.

I will push you onward or drag your down to failure.

I am completely at your command.

Half of the things you do you might as well turn over

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.
