Who am I?—Sean Covey’s most thought provoking poem.


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?
