The early bird catches the worm 英文諺語
The early bird catches the worm 捷足先登
If you wake up and get to work early, you will succeed; something that you say in order to tell someone that if they want to be successful they should do something immediately.
“If you see a job that interests you, apply as soon as possible. The early bird catches the worm.”
Birds often feed on worms. They go out of their nests in search of worms early in the morning. But the earliest bird usually gets most of the worms. A bird that goes out late would not get even a single worm as the other birds might have finished them off. Similarly, a person who is always late in doing his duties may not get the full benefit of them. It is always better to do duties in the right and proper time. Postponing them to another day or some other time may rob us of our benefits. In all matters, latecomers 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 also.
