Have you ever had one of those amazing night’s sleep when you wake up and you don’t know what day it is at first?

I just did.

Then I realized that it was today, Wednesday, the Wednesday into which I had smushed all my calls for the week because I’m traveling for work again tomorrow.

In years past, this realization would have been filled with dread. But today, I felt excited. “Let’s do this!”

But because I’ve spent the better part of the last 7 years, (2,555) mornings pushing and pulling and strategizing and finagling and managing and, in some cases, dreading work, I thought I would pop in here with a PEP talk.

What did I need to hear throughout all these years to encourage me to keep going?

I’m making an attempt at that here, for you.
