No greater excitement than at the start

New job team project love work of art

The air of expectancy crackles with life

Creativity’s buzzing without room for strife


The joy that lives in and surrounds all you do

Your life takes on focus purpose renewed

Your brain generator glows sunspots exploding

Caution watch for fizzling or signs of imploding


As you get lift off and grounding traction

Engagement deepens to purposeful action

With awareness of mission in what you’re engaging

Your cellular configuration starts rearranging


Now it’s your turn at the trough of communion

Your presence engages without confusion

The joy of this grace state with kiln-like intensity

Curbs procrastination and self-doubt propensity


I say to you and suggest as a habit

When routine enslaves engage your jackrabbit

Let freshness excite your deep creative spirit

Whatever the prize you’ll surely win it


Do you recall a few projects that energized and engaged you at the beginning?

What was it about them that excited you?

How long did the enthusiasm continue?

What contributed to the waning of your attention and engagement?

Can you see some strategy here that will help you stay engaged?
