It’s the standard comment that most of us make on a Monday morning.

So many of us need that morning caffeine fix to get us up and running for the day.

But what if there was another way to get us going?

What if you were so inspired by what you were doing that you didn’t need a cup of coffee to get yourself started?

What if the energy that you needed came from within?

What if your cup of coffee was to help you to reflect with satisfaction on a job well done, not to delay starting one?

Of course, it’s possible that you really do need a cup of coffee to face the day.  If that’s the case for you, just know that it doesn’t have to be that way.  Life and careers can be more rewarding.

To quote Lou Holtz,

“If you’re bored with life…you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things…you don’t have enough goals.”

Let’s set some ambitious, meaningful and exciting goals and reclaim our burning desire to do great things, with or without coffee.
