Take a Minute, It's The Little Things That Matter | Opinion
Nowadays, it seems like 24 hours just isn't enough time to complete tasks anymore. For instance, I used to wake up at about 5 am, run out the door at 5:20 am then start my 1.5-hour commute to my current construction site in Fort Lee, NJ. Once I arrived for my 7 am start time, I worked for 10 hours because I had to get that sweet, sweet overtime, then hopped back in my work truck for the 1.5-hour commute home. Once I got home, it was usually already around 7 pm. That left me right around 4 hours to do my daily routine of cooking a quick meal, doing a few projects, spending time with friends and family - or at least trying to - and going to the gym. Some days it feels almost impossible to accomplish all these tasks, and the only thought that keeps me trudging along is the sweet relief that the weekend brings.
