ProdPod: Episode 59 -- Habit

ProdPod, a Productivity Podcast

I came across this poem (who's author is unknown to me) several years ago and I think it's definitely worth sharing. If you haven't yet listened to Episodes 12 to 15 on habit development, go check those out after listening to this episode. Enjoy!

HabitI will push you onward or drag you down tofailure.I am completely at your command.over to me and I will do them - quickly andcorrectly.Show me exactly how you want something doneand after a few lessons, I will do it automatically.and alas, of all failures as well.Those who are great, I have made great.Those who are failures, I have made failures.I work with the precision of a machineplus the intelligence of a person.it makes no difference to me.I will place the world at your feet.

I am your constant companion.

I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden.

Half of the things you do you might as well turn

I am easily managed - you must be firm with me.

I am the servant of great people,

I am not a machine though

You may run me for profit or run me for ruin -

Take me, train me, be firm with me, and

Be easy with me and I will destroy you.

Who am I? I am Habit.
