Are You Using Your Weekends to Escape Your Weekdays?

What if you created a life where you look forward to the work-week?

You can, if you put your mind to it.

Use Your Weekends to Escape Your Weekdays, says TK Coleman.

“Instead of making ‘Thank God it’s Friday’ our mantra, we should be saying ‘I can’t believe I’m experiencing this much meaning and fulfillment on a Monday.’ While it’s easy to assume that boredom and burnout are the results of a vacation problem, they’re often the result of a vocation problem.”

Quote of the Day

“Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful, lest you let other people spend it for you.”

— Carl Sandburg
