    Telling all about his positive way
    Dan gives a view of the start of his day
    He says that his power
    Is from his first hour
    From there comes the spirit, he’ll display

    • Cliff – oh my. I love this.

      I’m going to share this on my podcast this next week. You certainly captured the essence of my focus on the first hour – thanks.

      • Cliff Feightner

        Thank you Dan. this is one time I was glad I didn’t go with my first instinct. that would have been Constantly Negative News, which is a perfect first line for a limerick.
        Another point you stressed during the podcast is not to keep your ideas to yourself. Since the first of July, I have been being constantly being encouraged by Tom Ziglar, who has told me that I have many fans in his office. another thought that has been running through my mind while I’m sharing my poetry with folks I never dreamed I’d share them with is your granddaughter who would be in the painting class, look at her work, and say “This is really great.” Lesson is if you have a talent, please share it with the world.
