It pays to not work on the weekends!

-Bill Watterson, Cartoonist (Calvin & Hobbes)

Good stuff from Travis. Not sure you can do this with the 10/15 deadline staring at us, but if you can’t plan on implementing right after.
Successful people know the importance of shifting gears on the weekend to relaxing and rejuvenating activities.
A new study from Stanford shows … that productivity per hour declines sharply when the workweek exceeds 50 hours, and productivity drops off so much after 55 hours that there’s no point in working any more. That’s right, people who work as much as 70 hours (or more) per week actually #get the same amount #done as people who work 55 hours.

- They Disconnect
- They Minimize Chores
- They Reflect

- They Schedule Micro-Adventures
- They Wake Up at the Same Time
- They Designate Mornings as Me Time
- They Prepare for the Upcoming Week
