Have i mentioned lately that i love what i do? but fridays are a fan favorite. the rest of the week is filled with meetings and deadlines. not that i dislike them. but there’s more of a sense of performance. get up before dawn. put on slacks and coordinate shoes and belt. and it’s off to the races.
but fridays are different. the typical friday allows me to sleep in an extra hour. i throw on an old pair of jeans and hang out at one of the local cafes, sip something sweet, a classic U2 tune in the background, and spend several hours uninterrupted at the computer, thinking and planning, sometimes throw in a little coding. but for the most part, it’s a different pace.
i highly advise getting out of the office occasionally. take an hour for lunch and take a book. sit on a park bench and watch the cars go by. turn your phone off. there’s not much that can’t be put off by one hour. it’s therapeutic.
