Today’s creative assignment: pick a day next week and shift your schedule by one hour.
You can shift forward or back—I’m a morning person so I’ll get up and go to bed an hour earlier than usual. That means I can also get to work an hour earlier—leave an hour early, too! Take lunch at 1:00 instead of 2:00. Have an earlier dinner.
It may not seem like a big change, but you’ll encounter a different world. Your commute will be more or less crowded. Maybe you’ll get in on a timely lunch special you normally miss, or eat from the early-bird dinner menu. If you watch TV in the morning or evening, you’ll see different shows. Maybe you’ll see the sun rise—or catch the sunset from street level instead of inside your office.Posted by kuri at October 24, 2003 12:00 AM
