Fire in the Belly

Chase down your passion like it's the last bus of the night. - Glade Byron Addams

When you’re really and totally passionate about something, you can’t think of anything else. When you’re completely and utterly focused on doing and being your best, you can’t help but be inspired. And when you’re toned and conditioned – mentally and physically – to be able to do whatever is needed to get the job done, you show others the way to succeed. That’s how it is when you have that kind of ‘fire-in-the-belly’.

Today you’ll face lots of deadlines – projects and papers and programs that are due, things that have to get picked up at the store, kids that have to be dropped off or picked up somewhere, last-minute presents that have to be bought, points that have to be won or scored before the end of a game, calls that need to be answered and made, dogs that have to be walked, words that need to be spoken and, well, rides and buses that must be caught. Treat these as if your world, or life, or job, or family, or reputation, or livelihood, or peace of mind depends on when and how well they’re done. We often never know when something is really important until it’s almost too late, so it’s best to treat things that are important to you as important to all. Chase down today’s deadlines like life depends on them – because most likely it does.
