Morning Coffee Thoughts 5/3

coffee

Every morning, we gather here to contemplate, plan, soak up inspiration, harvest motivation, and get jacked up on coffee and confidence for a day of kicking ass.

WAKEY WAKEY, YOU BEAUTIFUL MOTHER FUCKERS. LACE YOUR SHOES UP TIGHT BECAUSE TODAY YOU’RE GOING TO BE A GLADIATOR IN THE RING OF LIFE FIGHTING OFF LIONS AND TIGERS AND WEIRD DUDES IN SHITTY COSTUMES. PEOPLE ARE GOING TO TRY TO COME UP TO YOU AND MAKE SMALL TALK LIKE “HEY BILL HOW ABOUT THIS WEATHER WE’RE HAVING?” AND YOU’RE GOING TO RESPOND “NOT FUCKING NOW TED I’VE GOT CHECKS TO CASH AND ASSES TO SMASH SO SHUT YOUR YAPPER AND MOVE OUT THE WAY BEFORE YOU GET STEAMROLLED BY THE MONEY TRAIN.” THAT’S THE KIND OF WEDNESDAY WE’RE DEALING WITH HERE. THIS ISN’T SOME “COAST THROUGH THE HOURS STARING AT THE CLOCK AND PLAYING WORDS WITH FRIENDS ON YOUR FUCKING PHONE” TYPE OF WEDNESDAY. THIS IS A “COME OUT DROPPING DIMES AND FIRING UP THREE-POINTERS FROM SIX FEET BEHIND THE LINE WHILE STARING YOUR OPPONENT DEAD IN THE EYES THEN HOLDING UP DOUBLE MIDDLE FINGERS AT THE CROWD WHILE YOU SAUNTER BACK DOWN THE COURT” TYPE OF WEDNESDAY. THAT’S A LITTLE BASKETBALL ANALOGY TO CELEBRATE THE NBA PLAYOFFS FOR YOU. SPORTS! NOW GET OUT THERE AND CLIP SOME NUTS IN THE SPORT OF BUSINESS.

What’s on your schedule this morning? What are you going to conquer today? Let us know in the comments section below. Positivity only. Build the energy. Come correct or don’t come at all.
