When my wise old grandmother was helping me set up my typing business in 1966—I was 11—I asked her about working on Sundays. I had two reasons for that: (1) She was a devout Catholic, and (2) my typing business would be focused on Texas A&I University students. Students often have many papers due on Monday but they don’t start working on those papers until noon on Sunday.
She taught me that every day is an opportunity to earn money, take a vacation, and spend time with myself. In other words, she taught me how to schedule things. For 48 years, I have scheduled my life. Each day has opportunities to make money, a little vacation, and time to myself. I use Excel for all that scheduling in today’s world.
“Every day” includes weekend days and holidays, no exceptions. Such scheduling has allowed me to make myself available 24/7 to my Clients without getting burned out on anything. I have never felt a need to “look forward to the weekend,” wonder “when is Friday going to get here?” or be all sad and depressed because the holiday or weekend is coming to an end….
And I never had a Manic Monday.
