Just out of college,
Make a bee line to find work.
Early bird gets worm.
Second mouse gets cheese.
Do not procrastinate please.
Learn from experience.
[ OLD SAYINGS OR QUOTES ]

In the past people believed
that bees flew in a straight line
to their hive.
So if you made a bee line
you went straight for it.

there is an old saying 'the early bird gets the worm'
- meaning, it is best to start the day early
and also not procrastinate on things.
somebody clever added
'but the second mouse gets the cheese'
- meaning, the first mouse got killed
in the mousetrap and so you got rewarded
for starting late or procrastinating.
so let the other eager person screw up
and then learn from their failure
and then reap the reward.
