I’ve been taking every Wednesday in November off work. I wanted to mix up the working week and this is doing it.
I now finish the week twice. There’s the last push on a Tuesday because I drop off the face of the working planet on Wednesday. Then there’s the last, last push on Friday before going into the weekend.
Is it as relaxing as a three day weekend? No. It’s more like hitting the pause button on the week and wandering off to do anything else. According to my day planner, Wednesday’s excitement will be exercise; checking out the low pressure alert on one of my car tires; doing some writing; and reading a book.
No calls, video or otherwise. No Slack messages. No blizzard of email.
I claim Wednesday.
