Here is a motivational piece I’ve kept at least 15 years. It still works to keep me focused! 

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up.  It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. 

Every morning a lion wakes up.  It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death. 

Thus, it doesn’t matter whether you are a lion or a gazelle…. 

When the sun comes up, you’d better be running.
