Three-day weekends sound great! But the four-day work week they create can be another story. When work is busy, the translation is “I’ve got four days to get five days worth of work completed!”

  • Sometimes in life, you need those three-day weekends to catch your breath. Take it.
  • Sometimes, you need that Monday of quiet to catch up on work projects. Do it.
  • Sometimes, you make a deal with yourself … what are five work projects I can complete this weekend so that when the work week starts on Tuesday, I can look back on the weekend and know I got the head start I needed? Balance it.

Whatever your scenario, remember the meaning of this particular three-day weekend as well – reflect and honor the sacrifices made to protect our freedom. Enjoy it.
