I’ve worked a full week at the second job and the good news is, I think I’ll be able to handle the extra workload without becoming horribly exhausted. The bad news is, on days I work both jobs, I pretty much go to work, then go to work, go home and sleep. So my free time amounts to when I’m driving and my breaks. Cinderella’s Don’t Know What You’ve Got (Till It’s Gone) has been popping up in my head this week.
Even though Tom is talking about losing love, we’re on the same page on how it feels to lose something you took for granted.
Thirty extra hours doesn’t sound like a lot in the grand scheme, but spread out over a week, it’s amazing how much time in your day you’re left with. I don’t get a lot time with my wife, my family or to do much of anything. What was I doing with those thirty hours when I had them to myself? Definitely not using them to the fullest.
Now I think, ahead of time, what I’ll do with my ONE day off and where else there’s free time coming up. And for the first time I’m evaluating how important the things I want to do are because now I’m in a position where I can’t fit it all in.
Eventually I’ll get my time back and when I do, I hope to have uncluttered my day enough to have a better handle on what I can do with it.
Everyone has there own set of goals and responsibilities, so I ask you guys: Are you happy with what you accomplish with your day?
