Does it feel like Friday to you too?

It really feels like a Friday to me, I can't explain it but Fridays have a certain feel to them. Everything is laid back in the office on Friday's. Many companies consider it dress down day. Whats funny about Fridays is that I am usually less gung ho and yet I seem to have super productive Fridays. It's kind of like the idea that if you tense up in the middle of a car accident just before impact you usually get much more hurt than if you were to have stayed relaxed. On Friday I just sit back and the calls seem to pour in.

I've written in previous blogs about how I took a little time off from this industry because I moved accross the state back to my home town. When I got back there weren't any mortgage companies hiring at the time and I did not have the required reserves to start my own shop. I was estactic about gaining employment at Lake City Mortgage. I love this industry and the work associated with it. I lay in bed for a few minutes in the morning not wanting to leave the shelter of my warm blankets. After about 5 minutes of laying in bed and thinking about my agenda (usually the progression of a couple specific loan files) for the day I forget about the cold and snap out of bed. I really believe that I am blessed to be in a position where the thought of my work gets me up out of bed in the morning excited to meet the day.

:) not really sure, I just always feel really relaxed on Friday's like the hard work of the week is coming to an end. I think it may just be programmed into me. The very first mortgage company that I worked for used to hold "dress down day" on Friday, let us out early, and constantly tell us to "burn bright Monday through Thursday and relax on Friday." I work really hard on Friday's and sometimes I find myself getting more done on a lazy Friday than on a bright burning Thursday but still I always feel pretty relaxed on Friday's no matter the circumstance. And today for some reason it feels like Friday to me:)


Thanks for the comment Carol!

After years of conditioning, even though I often work on weekends, I share your reaction to Fridays.

Rosario - its good to know that I am not alone I work most saturdays; mostly in the office, sometimes I travel for work. No matter what I still feel a feeling of relaxation that comes over me on Fridays. No complaints though, it is a good feeling, it almost feels like a feeling of accomplishment. Thank you for the comment Rosario ...and hey when we gonna do some business:)?
