What Day Is It?
I ask people as politely as I can not to write me with questions or issues on a weekend or holiday unless it’s an emergency. (I think a consulting “emergency” is about as likely as a dermatological emergency, which is why so many doctors go into dermatology, in order to have regular hours, but I digress). You’d be surprised how many “offenders” tell me they just didn’t realize it was a weekend, and this is well before the current pandemic craziness.
It’s your business if you want to “work” on a weekend, I often do some writing myself. But if you don’t know what day it is because you simply work the same way every single day without letup, consider this an intervention. Success is about working smart, not hard.
