    I am not sure about being lazy any days of the week. I like to work and be productive.

    Can I chill and still be productive by reading a book or even doing some house cleaning? Being lazy is not my idea of having a good time. Lounging on the other hand is a different story. Are they related? You tell me??

    Work, production, exercising, building and thinking about new opportunities and new ideas are my game. Is this to much?

    This is a good time of year to share with others and help out the less fortunate. What do you contribute? Seems like there's an endless amount that needs to be done.

    Happy Holidays!!

    I used to love just stoking up the fire and spending one of these short winter days reading a good book straight through.

    But these days, I rarely have time to do that more than once or twice a year. There's always something that needs to be fixed or some deadline coming up...

    I noticed a huge amount of mission creep a few years ago. It all started with the usual, 'Can you please, just do THIS for ME? And something else for someone else, etc.

    Soon enough, we got to the 'one thing lead to the other' syndrome, and I simply had no choice but to exercise some 'brutality' and stop this, dead in its tracks.

    So, I did stop the 24/7 availability, and very significantly increased the cost of the non-emergency work on weekends and holidays. Et voila, it has worked like a charm.icon_biggrin.gif

    I am now having a 4 day working week. And yup, I am using the rest of my time to do as I please. I am happy about the good, ole 'pajama day' once in awhile, too. I have grown to believe that I should be able to enjoy my freedom. Much as I enjoy being productive, creative, etc., I have freed myself from the sense of compulsion I used to have about it for a few years.

    I now consciously choose to do something productive, reminding myself that I really do not have to do this. The results are better, and I feel much better about it, too.

    Well I suffer from fatigue which is somewhat stress related so I need some lazy days.Esp in the summer sometimes I love to lay in th sun and just close my eyes.I wish there was a supplement or drug that really helped with fatigue!
