I'm reminded of what my dear Pappy would say
Son, there's two kinds of people in the world today
A proactive person makes a stitch just in time
But a reactive person waits till it needs nine
It's not that one's smart and the other one lazy
But to wait till it's broke, well to me is just crazy
I've listened to Pap and to be proactive my goal
It has helped me to keep my life in control
