Day 80 of my 100 Day Attack is also a Day of Rest

Day 80 of my 100 Day Attack is also a Day of Rest

Work six; Rest one is a good-living formula that has been in civilizations for millenia.

Even with my 100 Day Attack where every day is important to the final outcome, this formula still holds true. I have enjoyed each Sunday with its gratitude, rest and recreation aspects. (Read recreation as Re-Creation)

Since Day 100 is a Saturday, then I will surely swing into Day 101 as a day of Big Gratitude.

You might think that instead of being a Clock watcher, I have morphed into a Calendar watcher. Not so. And yet, I am aware of each day and my demands to get the most from it.

I know what my income producing activities are. I have refined them, discarding where necessary, and I have increased them in 10 day increments with my 1.1 multiplier. The compounding effect has taken over: with seemingly minimal effort on my part, I can meet the increased demands on my activity.

I expect the end result will be the establishment of a new norm, a benchmark for future expansion.

With 80 days gone, I am well into "my second wind", a term I have not used since younger, athletic days, but one that is now event appropriate.

For those who doubted the wisdom of one hundred days of sustained effort, I am gald that they have long since stood aside and turned their comments to other impossibilities.

I am happy to report that the human spirit has plenty in reserve, and can be tested by anyone.

Ready again to Work six, Rest one.

Larry good for you.  The longer you keep at it the more it becomes a habit.  Enjoy your day of rest.

Glad you are still steady at it, Larry. I agree about needing a day after six work days to recharge and renew.

JoAnn - Ran into a chap the other day who believes in Work One - Rest Six. And he wonders why he is not getting ahead.

Mary - Jules Verne had his character Phileas Fogg go "Around the World in 80 days". Nellie Bly of the New York World did it in 72 days ~ in 1889. Truth can out do the best fiction. Catch you in less than three weeks.

Jill - Part of my response to "create your own journey or be part of someone else's.  Rejuvenation and regeneration by getting out of my comfort zone. What if we could get a lot more of the country to work at least five days a week with purpose?

Hi Larry,

80 days is a wonderful feat. Everyone needs to take a day off once a week even if it is just a half a day. If you continue, your days will become busier with more business. Happy Sunday!
