Self Discipline

What has to be done must be done
Lazing around just will not pay
Grab hold of yourself and move on
Do what you have to do today

Despite the mood you may be in
Know time and tide wait for no one
Get busy, start the ball rolling
If not, you will be overrun

Hold on and sustain the effort
Though you may not feel to do so
Stand firmly for no matter what
Be assured success will follow

I could not agree, with you more my friend,
While I procrastinate here, and sit on my end.
Your words have inspired me my errands to run. .
and they seem easy to say, but hard to get done ...... laugh
