YourMondayMotivator: Do you have to make use of a longer day?

Summer is really starting to hit Auckland lately. We’ve just had an amazing weekend and Monday has started really well.

Beautiful start to the day

The sun is well up by 6.30 now and going down a lot later. Energy levels are rising and the fresh Summer food is really going down well. I do like me some beautiful weather and a good chicken salad. Yum!

However, I’ve noticed all I’ve really done with the extra time is, … work.

Now I like what I do but surely I can do as much as I did in the same time when the days were shorter. Right?

Yes I can.!

I like this quote from 37 Signals Jason Fried, “Workaholics aren’t heroes. They don’t save the day, they just use it up. The real hero is home because she figured out a faster way”

Summer is a great time to practice this idea. Confine your time to just the hours you need to be at work and you will find you can get what you need to get done, done.

Then get home, get out into the sun, get walking, running, riding etc. This will be really worthwhile time spent because it will clear your head and allow your thoughts / imagination to kick back into gear.

Enjoy Summer on your terms. It’s a great time of year and you can do more than just work.
