Feeling it a bit, today?

Gotta admit, I am a bit.

Was a busy weekend… and I look a bit like a steamed lobster… bright arse red. Anyway, it got me thinking. It’s been awhile since I really dreaded a Monday, but man did I used to.

The worst was when I worked at the window factory.

I knew I was in for a day of life-draining monotony…

Drilling the same three screws into 200+ windows…

Over the course of 8 hours.

Talk about “just kill me now”.

Then, there was the telemarketing job. It was the opposite. Intense. It was like riding a rollercoaster ride for 8 hours straight. Kinda fun at first, but after about an hour or two… like, “okay, I’m gonna hurl”.

Let’s see… fry cook, shoe salesman… heck, even the military.

I always dreaded Mondays.

The thing that changed, of course, was finally going for and doing something I loved. I know, I know… cliche. But, it’s just true. I’m not a big lovey dovey, “omgawd, the universe will provide all” type.

But, there’s some truth in the old saying:

“Do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life.”

That and there’s no greater feeling than getting to look back and say, “I did it. I made it out.” Because it’s not just about putting food on the table… it’s about going for something big and getting it.

That sense of pride and accomplishment.

Feels good.

And makes Mondays suck less.

Even if, you’re an idiot and spent way too much time in the sun and are dog tired.

Anyway, you know the drill…

There’s a smart way and a dumb way to get the skills you need to get there. And, I’m always pointing you at Udemy or some other resource to do it the right way. But, today, I want you to ask yourself this:

What if Mondays didn’t suck so much?

How much would that be worth to you?

100 buqs? 200? What about 15?

Can you really sit there and justify not at least giving this a try.. while at the same having to admit that deep down… today just sucks?

Seems silly to waste anymore time…

When the way out is so cheap.

Anyway, here’s the obligatory link:

If you’re ready to finally just say eff it and go for it… to make your Mondays (and every day) suck a bit less, then make that leap. Click the link to trigger the discount, search for the topics you need to learn and snap up the best 5 or 6 courses… and let’s freakin’ do this!
