Lately I’ve been thinking of implementing catch-up days in my work week. Either as the fifth day of the work week (that’s what the boyfriend would want), or as one of my four weekend days (what I would want). On days like these, where I’m doing a full morning ritual including the gym, it’s difficult to get around to working on Chain Twenty deadlines. Especially when a text editing order comes in and has priority.
It’s easy to just work through the evening and not go to the beach to enjoy the sunset + burgers with friends. But if you get up at 06:45 in the morning, you should be able to enjoy the evening off, right? So, catch-up days. It’s an idea from Aileen (@lavendaire) and I think it’s so perfect in its simplicity. On the last work day of the week, you simply plan nothing. If you’ve made all your deadlines, you can use this day for new projects from your one-day-when-I-have-the-time-list. If not — which is more likely — you can catch up on all those deadlines and enjoy a relaxed weekend off.
