Dreading tomorrow?

I remember this construction job I had.

I must’ve pissed somebody off, at some point, because I got relegated to “trash guy”. I remember I used to battle with my watch. It took everything in me to not keep looking down at it. I’d think an hour had gone by and it’d be just 15 minutes.

On this one site, I had my “spot”.

It was a bell tower for a church.

And, it had these loud ass steps.

So, I’d go up there, clean it up real quick then go take a nap in one of the nooks up there. Not because I was tired, but I was hoping I’d konk out for three or four hours and the day would be over.

If anybody ever came up, the stairs always woke me up.

Anyway, most people hate Mondays.

I always hated Sunday night.

As that feeling of “God, I gotta go to work tomorrow” slowly starts to creep over your body. “Is there some way I could quit? Maybe I’ll call in sick.” That anticipation was worse than the actual experience.

But, those were also the moments I was most motivated to make a change.

Eventually, I figured out how to channel that energy.

And, used it to finally, actually, make that change in my life.

In any case, if that’s you… if you’re thinking about tomorrow and dreading getting up and going to work… use it. That impulse to make a change is real. They’re moments of crystal clarity and tough honesty.

Don’t ignore them.

Wallow in them.

Make it hurt.

Feel it.

Then, get up and do something about it.

String enough of them together and you can make things happen.

And, of course, if you want assist when it comes to your web development and/or freelancing career, I’m here to help. I’ve got a whole curriculum for you to grind through and actually make that change.

It’s all there for you to make it happen.

Just gotta make that leap and decide to do it.

But, up to you.

If you’re in,  you can get access to the entire curriculum for nothing over on SkillShare. All the details on that are here: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/johnmorris

John
