Welcome to the new day.
Another Monday has arrived,
A new week, a new ride.
What will you make of it?
Did you enjoy the weekend?
The ability to exhibit your skills,
Show off what you’ve learned,
Show off who you’ve become.
It’s time to grow.
Become more than you were.
Stretch past your comfort zone.
Into the unknown.
Never far from shore
The Sure-Thing boat floats on.
Places never seen before, reserved
for those who dare and will do.
You are the creator.
You are the doer.
You are the master.
You are you.
So put in the extra effort.
Grow this week like never before.
The weekend will arrive,
The crowd, awaiting your appearance.
“A man needs a little madness or else he never dares to cut the rope & be free.”

You have awoken to a new day!
Survived the weekend,
now time to work.
I don’t care if you’re sick.
I don’t care if you’re hungover.
I don’t care if you don’t feel like it.
I don’t care about any excuse.
All I care about is that you put in the time.
Put in the time to improve yourself.
Put in the time to grow your garden.
Put in the time to sow more seeds.
Put in the time to harvest, when ready.
Put in the time to learn a new skill.
Put in the time, putting in the time.
You are a great consumer!
You have proved this time and again.
You no longer have to prove that to me.
You no longer have to prove that to yourself.
It’s time to create.
Create, and create some more.
Contribute back to society.
Draw, Paint, Write, Sing, Dance.
Create art with a passion.
Learn how to create a new art if bored.
Teach what you already know.
Teach what you want to learn.
Teach for the joy.
Teach for the fulfillment.
Teach, because it makes you a better person.
It’s time to go now.
Go put in the time.
