It’s a valid question. There must be some reason, something that drove you to rise from the snuggly warm sheets, in the darkness, while the dog snored with content on his own bed at the foot of yours.
Why did you get out of bed today?
Is it, “Cuz I have to. I have to go make money, pay rent, fill the fridge, and make my friggin’ MasterCard payment on time,”? If so, this will not sustain your motivation. Eventually, no matter how big the paycheck is, you will tire and lose your steam. The pressure of providing wears on all of us.
Money is necessary, wonderful even, and is a good driving force in pulling ourselves from the morning’s horizontal into the day’s vertical.
