Got An Hour…?

Time and Life

I think yesterday was one of my favorite days of 2009.

No, it wasn’t my birthday… nor a holiday or anniversary. It wasn’t that a sudden warm front had passed through the night before, because… well, it hadn’t.

In fact, quite frankly… we were freezing our buns…

Oh sorry, I digress.

And it CERTAINLY wasn’t that Brett Favre had returned to Lambeau Field to throw four touchdown passes, and walk away with a Quarterback Rating of 128.6 and his SEVENTH WIN in EIGHT GAMES this season… though I must admit, at least on one level, (shhh… don’t tell anyone) I think it’s pretty cool.

Ah, but I digress once again.

No, there’s DEFINITELY another reason why November 1st was a great day. You see, here in the U.S., with twenty-five hours… yesterday was the longest day of the year.


Now, I may be alone on this, but I’ve always loved the end of Daylight Savings Time.

Not the whole six months that follows, mind you… just that one day. As a kid, my mom always told me that I would get an extra hour of sleep that night. And maybe you heard the same thing.

Never happened. Not then… not now.

No, I like the fact that I get to STAY UP and DO STUFF an extra hour… and I actually saw the clock on my cell phone change from 2am back to 1am.

I know, it weird… but I like it.

So, at 1am… with my extra hour… I created a spreadsheet with some projections that I’m really jacked about. Yes, then I drank some coffee… pondered a few goals… and brainstormed an agenda for a meeting that I had earlier tonight that went, well… about as positively as I figured it would.

After all, I had an extra hour of preparation… of motivation… of inspiration.

An extra hour of sleep?

Nah, sorry Mom… an extra hour of life. And I hope you had an incredible hour also!


I look forward to speaking with you soon.

  1. Hi Steve,
    That’s a nice post again, I like it:-) It’s kinda like what we talked about last weekend that you enjoy reading over a cup of coffee.
    I am working on something also that will hit the net in the next few hours…
