“We first make our habits, then our habits make us.” -English Poet
I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden. I will push you onward or drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command. Half the things you do might just as well turn over to me and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly. Those how are great, I have made great. Those who are failures, I have made failures. 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.
In order to be successful, you have to develop EFFECTIVE habits. EFFECTIVE PEOPLE HAVE EFFECTIVE HABITS.
