For Labor Day, we’re reposting an article from Robert that is fitting for this holiday.
What does your ideal day look like? Okay, I recognize it’s an unfair question because, like me, you have many “ideal” days and they don’t necessarily look the same. Options? You get up early, have a cup of strong coffee, enjoy your favorite hobby such as golf, fly-fishing, scuba diving, or reading and then wind it down with a nice dinner at your favorite restaurant. Or you might wake up in a tent, do some technical rock climbing, and then eat dehydrated food prepared over a tiny outdoor stove before turning in early. Maybe you prefer sleeping in, going shopping, and then having a leisurely massage before ordering Chinese take-out for yourself and a couple friends who have joined you to watch “The Bachelor” (aka a “girls night in”). There are many, many options. But most of us have an idea of what our ideal day would entail. Adventure or leisure? Many friends or by ourselves? Beach or mountains? Coffee or tea? Kids or no kids?
