This fall, I will start working 4 days instead of 5. Yes, I have been working full time these past three years, whilst also trying to set up my own illustration company. In fact, I've been working more than full time, as I work for a cultural institution and we often have evening events. About two times a week, I get home around midnight. Which is fine. I just don't get a lot of sleep. Or time to think. Or see friends and family. Or time to sort of be where I am at and come up with a coherent plan or idea of where I want to be. And that kind of needs to change. Now. I know I am probably being a tad too optimistic thinking this one day a week will completely transform my life, but it's a (very small) step towards healthier 'energy management'. Been watching this video of energy expert Tony Schwartz I found on 99% (Behance) over and over again.
