"Get to it while the getins' good." My Mom always used to say that and we all picked it up and still use the phrase sometimes. It means to do it while you have the chance or you may not get the chance again.
Before you had asked the question, perhaps you should have read what you had written and realised that you had used an incorrect word and left out another. The following is very difficult to read or make sense of: “You better get to it while your to it or you may never get to it to do it again.”
Perhaps you would have realised that “You’d better get to it while you’re at it or you may never get to it to do it again,” would have been a better way of having written it.
Did you also notice that you had used the possessive “your” rather than the abbreviation “you’re”?
“Strike while the iron is hot.” or “Strike while the iron’s hot.” (Please note that the apostrophe in the latter sentence is not a possessive apostrophe but is rather the apostrophe required for an abbreviation - as in your earlier mistake by not using “you’re”.)
