Monday Morning Motivation

Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.  --- Thomas Edison

Man in OverallsWith just a little more than a week left in the first quarter of the year and today being the first full day of Spring now would be a good time to put on our overalls and go to work.  Be it in our garden or in our business.  

We have come through a weird and wild winter with loads of snow and rain and just flat out cold weather in many parts of the country.  It seemed like it would never end but we are now able to see the warm weather at the end of the tunnel.  This would signal that it is time to go to work and make hay while the sun shines.

So with the sun in our face and the wind at our backs and dressed in our overalls let’s not miss another opportunity to improve our lot in life.  It’s time to go to work.

Here is to an Opportunity filled week and much success because of no Opportunity being missed.

I tie oppurtunity and luck together.

The harder I work the luckier I get.

Thomas Edison is right on still!  We seek thrills and glamour, but it's hard work in the end that pays off in real estate and in life.

Howdy and morning to you Don

Don, this here last winter sure was a mighty wild one all over the Country. Its not wanting to let go up here yet, we got 2" of snow fall here at the house yesterday and its snowing once again here right now. A lot of folks sure do let Opportunity walk on by them.

Have a good one
