Misusing the Weekend
What makes for a weekend well-spent?
What can keep you from staring back on Sunday evening at the utter waste of precious hours?
My own formula for a good weekend:
- Taking some time to think, preferably over a good cup of coffee with a note pad on the table and a large window nearby.
- Watching nature - be it clouds, mountains, birds, or trees - with a greater than usual awareness.
- Spending time with my family.
- And yes, doing some work so Monday doesn't seize me by the throat.
In general, a requirement for a good weekend is that time must not be ignored or squandered. That said, there are times when the door should be open to complete sloth and self-indulgence. When those are your goals, they are rarely unattainable.
