We’re in a seasonally driven business, one that goes supernova for months at a time, only to go black hole for the remaining part of the year.
This season as the business hops into overdrive, I take one day off a week. Right now it’s Wednesdays.
What do I love to do on a day off? Live a pretend-future day.
It’s a day of frolic and work, yet it’s the kind of work I can easily imagine filling my days meaningfully in the future.
It involves writing and creating. Interviews. Breakfast and lunch meetings. Some kind of exercise. Sometimes a sizzling, slo-mo date with my woman. A nap. (!) More writing. More creating. Phone calls and emails. All around how freakishly beautiful this world is.
Oh, and the cake and the icing too — play time with our son when he glides home from school.
Yep there’s homework and housework too. Errands. It’s all in there, it’s a full day.
Here’s what’s going to happen in the future. I’ll be reporting back to you my about my average day . . . and it will look like the above paragraphs. It will look like my Wednesdays.
Just so you know.
