When I woke up today,
I didn’t feel like getting up.
I didn’t feel rested
raring to go.
I didn’t just jump out of bed
with power and purpose.
I didn’t feel any of the things
are supposed to feel.
The truth of the matter is
I’ve only read about those kinds of people.
And the people I’ve met who said
they jump out of bed every day?
I have a strong sense they were posturing.
A few years ago,
I decided to quit thinking
I had failed if I wasn’t
maniacally motivated first thing.
I decided to circumvent
my waking feelings and thoughts.
I made a commitment to simply
get up when I woke up.
our thoughts and feelings.
So I don’t stay in bed feeling unmotivated.
And by the time I’ve made the coffee
the day is already in the win column.
Get up when you wake up
just see what happens.
