When I was in secondary school, my literature teacher would always say “early to bed, early to rise” the meaning was basically self explanatory but as I grew up, I realized that the meaning was deeper than just sleeping early.
In fact, for me, the initial meaning of the word has never been really accurate because the earlier I sleep the later I usually wake up.
However, the deeper and more poetic meaning of the phrase holds more relevance to me. “Early to bed, early to rise”
Now, when you begin a thing early, you have a higher chance of success. I know a lot of people who would say, “Well, the year just started, why should I be in such a hurry?”
This is a wrong and moronic mindset and it’s what leads to mighty regret at the end of the year.
The year just began, so, it’s the right time to get to work. When have you scheduled to accomplish that goal? Is it in May, July, September, Or is it in December?
Well, I have got news for you, every year has same number of months in it and at December you still always hear forks saying “but this year run ooo”
No my darling, the year isn’t Usain Bolt; it didn’t run with the speed of light. The hours in a day remains the same, the number of days in a month has not changed and we still have twelve months in a year. The year wasn’t unusually fast, you were unusually slow.
It’s your movement that determines the pace of the year and if you begin early, then you have a higher guarantee of arriving early.
To end well, you have to begin early. At July some persons might have already gotten all that they expect from this year and the other months of the year, they would just be getting extras.
While for some, at September that is when they would wake up from their slumber and begin to pursue.
You know what Jimmy Johnson said “the difference between ordinary and extraordinary is that little extra”
Trust me; there is a difference between those that started in January and the ones that started in June. Except his village people are following him, there is no way a man who started in June will beat the one who began in January.
Understand the times and work with wisdom. The year might have just begun but you can begin to plant so you would harvest on time.
Remember, you don’t harvest on the day you plant and the time you plant would determine the time you would harvest.
You don’t want to end up biting your fingers when early risers would be rejoicing over their harvest. A word is enough for the wise…
