निश्चित्वा यः प्रक्रमते नान्तर्वसति कर्मणः
अवन्ध्यकालो वश्यात्मा वै पण्डित उच्यते

Nishchitwaa yah prakramate naantarvasati karmanah
Avandhyakaalo vashyaatmaa sa vai pandita uchyate

That one is wise whose endeavours are preceded by a firm commitment, who does not take long rests before the task is accomplished, who does not waste his time and who has control over his mind.
