Dog Days of Summer

Howdy Y'all!

Here we are in the "Dog Days" of summer - reminded with every back-to-school sale that the summer fun is winding down and it's time to get the nose back to the grindstone. Kinda like that Sunday afternoon feeling when you pause to wonder where the weekend went. But honestly, one of my favorite days of the week is Monday (it's at least in the top 7!) Statistics show that most people die on Monday mornings. Really! Can you imagine dreading what you do so much that the thought of going back to work (or school) literally kills you???

So a better Back-To-School/Monday morning thought might be:
What do you LOVE about what you do?
What are you excited about discovering or creating with your work?
If we spend a majority of our lives either in school or work, what kind of legacy do you intend to leave via what you do?
And how will that affect the lives of those around you now and in the future?

If we ask ourselves these questions, I believe we'll begin to realize the profound effect that we have in this world and start looking forward to every day with the passion of a purpose-filled life.

All Things Possible!
