Innovative sites like Lifehacker and LifeTipsDaily try. Respected authors like Stephen Covey, Timothy Ferris, and David Allen continue to give it their best shot. No one has successfully managed to add more time to our daily ration of 1,440 minutes a day.
I am excited to share that there are now more than 24 hours in a single day. Woo Hoo! You can thank the striking folks from the WGA (Writer’s Guild of America). Yep, since the strike started on November 5th, they have added hours to our week. In our household, we’ve received six additional hours a week, which adds up to be 60+ hours since the strike began. That’s two and a half full days of my life back.
Have I missed the mindblowing plot lines of Heroes and the crazy non-PC utterances of Michael Scott on The Office? Yeah, sure, but it’s been nice to have more time too.
How many hours have you received in the last two months?
An even more important question is… what have you done with your extra hours?
I was just telling someone this the other day. Sure, I miss Pushing Daisies and House.
But I love my new-found time. I’m reading books and practicing piano.
Can they go on strike permanently?
Too funny. I remember when I broke my strangle-hold of TV a few years ago. I used to religiously watch some programs and would get very upset if I missed them. I finally realized how silly that was.
Now I enjoy TV when I can, and when I can’t, that’s okay too. Let’s hope that the writers get an extra creative boost from being in the real world for such an extended period of time. ;)
