Warriors Work Weekends

8 Jul

The weekend is the time to do the work on YOURSELF.

 

Wasted Days

Wasted Days

Observation: Monday to Thursday for many folks
Are just four days in the way until weekend evokes
A sense of vigor to get up and get some real work done
To finally address their tasks instead of simply shun
To get to work on that project or answer an e-mail
To get that letter in the post or follow up that sale
To find the time to exercise or get in touch with friends
It seems to me that many times you’ll find most of these trends
Occur when Friday rolls around because the weekend’s near
But think of all that you could do if you just got in gear
Instead on Thursday, Wednesday or on Tuesday and not wait
Maybe even on Monday you’d find you’re never late
You’d never scramble for deadlines, you wouldn’t feel so stressed
You’d find with four days extra of trying your very best
You’d get a lot more done not just for yourself, but for others
You’d also find how often that you would have all your druthers
Do not waste a single day, all seven are a chance
To grow in productivity and steadily advance

“Thank God it’s Monday.” ~Miro

T.G.I.M.

I recently got some advice
From a man I respect
This warrior of modern times
On Mondays did reflect

He talked about how everyone
Is always so downbeat
When the weekend has gone by
And is fully complete

“I hate Mondays” is what many
Grumble on that day
But this wise man points out just what
Is behind that cliche

The kind of person who wakes up
On Monday morn and cries
Is the same one who on Friday
Does happily rise

And says “TGIF” and is
Ecstatic that the week
Has finally “concluded,” for them
Fridays are the peak

This warrior’s own point of view
Is that there is no day
That has more joy or dread than any
Other cycle may

If you’re the kind of person who
Waits till the week is done
To be excited in the morning
You have not begun

To see the potential that lies
In every single hour
Of every single day because
You’re busy being sour

If you break the habit of
Waiting for week to end
If you take it day by day
And make them somehow blend

If you can wake up on Tuesday
With the same vigor
As you do on Saturday
(or maybe even bigger)

If you can be as thankful
When Monday rears its head
As you are on Friday and
Not show dismay instead

If Friday comes and goes and is
Another day to you
Another day you tried your best
Another day you grew

No different than Wednesday, Thursday
Or the week’s beginning
You’ll find no matter what the day
You will always be grinning

You’ll see what could be done each day
For those who do not work
Exclusively for the weekend
And rest of the week shirk

Yes, it’s Monday, deal with it
Embrace it, get it done
Don’t dread it and three more days
Before you cherish one
