Thursday is Too Close to Friday

White Rabbit Late as UsualThursday is a pivotal day in a week of expectations, the day of the week when what was intended for completion is suddenly at jeopardy of checkmark orphans.

While Wednesday is affectionately known as hump day, Thursday is, therefore by necessity, scramble day. And therefore by hopefulness, a time to quickly review what’s missing in time to make it by the end of Friday.

Friday is not the best time to discover the potential reality of falling short and attempting to double up to catch up. Friday is best as an ease-down day, that lovely activity of beginning to spin down the inner machine in anticipation of the weekend and well-earned recharging.

Making a Thursday first-thing-in-the-morning review moment will probably avoid Friday close-but-not frustrations. Alternative? Embrace this sentiment:

I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by. – Douglas Adams
