August 5 was "Work Like a Dog Day"and I was so busy "working like a dog" I forgot to greyhound dogs racing imageblog about it! 

While the creator and origins of “Work Like a Dog Day” on August 5, are unknown, most people understand that “working like a dog” means acting with total focus, devotion and passion on the task at hand until it’s completed.

Then it’s time to play or rest-other activities that dogs do well, too-and ones we'd be wise to emulate.

orkaholics just work (or are "at work" physically) all the time. No time for pleasure, little time for food, and hardly any time for rest either. It’s a fast track to job burnout and health issues.

To me, “Working Like a Dog” is practicing the habit Gary Keller describes in his book, “The One Thing”.  Simply “Do the One Thing” that, by doing it, will make the rest of the day easier and more efficient.

That "One Thing" could be lead generating or calling one's sphere of influence. It could be working to resolve that last contingent item on the contract. Or it could be taking that first walk around the block. dog sunglasses [party hat image

Yep, "Work Like a Dog Day" totally blew by me.  However, this has been an exceptionally busy summer, with loads of stuff coming at me from left field.  So, I was probably working like a dog.

Hi Michelle,  Thanks for sharing this awesome blog.  Although I did not know it was "work like a dog day", that is indeed what I did.  I love your reference to 

The One Thing.  Works for me.
