 THE EARLY BIRD CATCHES THE WORM

Birds go in search of worms early in the morning. But the earliest one gets the best and most of the worms. A bird that goes out late would not get even a single worm as other birds might have finished them off. Similarly, a person who is always late in doing his duties may not get the full benefit Postponing them to another day or some other time may rob us of our benefits. Everywhere, late comers are often dejected. Those who go first will be served first. Getting up early in the morning and starting our work is the best way to keep ahead of others. We should remember that there are others who start everything early and they quite naturally get the earliest benefits.
