Monday: Roll for Initiative
“Roll for initiative? What is this strange speech? I have not yet enjoyed sweet java this morning.” – some dude
The roll for initiative is a role playing game (RPG) staple. The roll determines who goes first, be it among players, enemies, etc. There are a million ways to do it and every game has its tweaks (stats, buffs, bonuses, die, punchies…..). You do the same in several sports. Badminton, raquetball, volleyball, football (coin toss). Now do you get it?
So you are beginning a Monday. What will you encounter?
- A short deadline project
- A fire to put out (real or figurative)
- An irate customer
- No coffee in the pot
- An opportunity to gossip
- A Beholder
No matter what you encounter (watch out for eye beams, dude), take care that you prepare yourself for anything.
How? Armor? Buffs? Magic missile?
I suggest, adventurer, that you prepare yourself by spending time with God in prayer before your day starts. Offer today and all your work to God’s glory. Ask for the intercession of the Blessed Mother and St Joseph.
Surprises will happen, but we are never fully alone. Let’s pray for each other today. I just prayed for you.
And for the record, I just rolled a 17 (1d20).
