We have covered the topic of weekends before on the Best of Both Worlds podcast, but it’s been a while, and we keep having weekends every week. So we decided to revisit the topic.
Weekends tend to become more complicated as families grow and as children get older and have their own interests to be accommodated. But I maintain that it is usually possible for the adults to get some relaxation time too. Ideally everyone has something to look forward to.
In the Q&A section we tackle a question from a listener who’s pondering going part-time in order to write (particularly blogging and the like). In general, we suggest building the habit first, and then if you need time to accommodate the growth of your blogging/writing career, that’s a different thing. Or if you can afford to go part-time and want to, great! But the words don’t always flow just because a workday is available, and it might take a while to replace the income of a more traditional career with writing income.
Please give the episode a listen and leave us a rating/review!
I will say that it’s funny (and not necessarily in a ha ha way…) this episode is airing this week (we recorded a few weeks ago). This past weekend featured a ton of stuff and I created a schedule that allowed for EVERYTHING. And then some folks did not follow the schedule, which naturally led to many problems, and I said I was not going to do the work of planning weekends anymore. We shall see how that goes!
