The title of this post is from the Bright Eyes (Conor Oberst) song, which captures the feeling of being awoken by a new romantic interest. The same feeling can be applied to your life goals. Or as Fleetwood Mac sung "yesterday's gone, yesterday's gone," if you happen to be an older, glass-half-empty type.

I'm writing this around 6 a.m. on the Saturday of 2017's Labor Day weekend. It's the perfect time to ponder recharging your batteries and tap into new inspiration. Get in touch with what drives your spirit. For me it's always been making sure I am in good physical health.
Today, I pledge to deliver tips for life. These are for myself, but hopefully you can apply the principles in your life:

2.) Exercise in the morning: It sets the tone for the day, energizes you and you get it done.
Next post is definitely going to be about Getting It Done.
