Geez, how many hours in the weekend are there???
Yup, I'm in violation--using my days off to catch up... always seems to feel like if I try to get ahead for the next few weeks, things will slow down, but in reality they never do.. this is a really good baseball-bat style reminder. I'm going to take some time off today.
Excellent! I will write you when the weekend is over... :)
Okay, but you just did. And you also caught me working while braising a brisket. Violation #2.
It took me six months to catch you catching me, Dawn. So we're doing something right.
Spencer Rascoff, CEO of Zillow says:
My weekends are an important time to unplug from the day-to-day and get a chance to think more deeply about my company and my industry. Even when I’m technically not working, I’m always processing in the background and thinking about the company. Weekends are a great chance to reflect and be more introspective about bigger issues.”
I think as people reconcile the differences between "work" and "life's work," the nature of leisure vs work time shift, and not so much in a negative way. The people that love their work are constantly thinking about it, and it doesn't seem like work, but merely the road to achieving their vision. It is a classic characteristic, for example of BM's INTP personality, that nirvana is found in the work that [we] are best suited for.
That's right. When we love what we do we don't want to take a break from it!
