Motivation

Tomorrow is the early morning WEN networking meeting. People start gathering at about 7:30 AM. This meeting is about 30 minutes from my house. For many years this meeting time had the most attendence, but in the last several years it has had about 25 - 30 people connecting.

Tomorrow there will be more!

Why? The "rollover, 50/50 raffle is up to $900. Yep, somebody will win the opportunity to pull the queen of diamonds out of the remaining 15 cards in the deck. But just as likely, they could pull one of the 13 black cards left.

Why am I 100% likely to be at that meeting tomorrow and only maybe 75% likely to attend the other morning meetings of the year? When you think about it, every networking participant could take $900 of value away from the event. I guess cash is more immediate.

Nope, the pot is now at $948. The next meeting is Tuesday next week, 1/16, at 4:30. Yep, you can bet, I'll be there.
