Albert Einstein observed, "The problems we face today cannot be solved on the same level of thinking we were at when we created them." Look around and you'll see that is true. The world keeps getting more and more complicated. Does that discourage you? It Doesn't have to. Many years ago, I came across a quote that made a tremendous impression on me. Is said,
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 of 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 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 wit all the precision of a machine plus 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 place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you.
Who am I?
I am HABIT!
Victor Hugo once said, "An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an invasion of Ideas."
We must all understand the value of good thinking.
