The Isolation

A couple days ago a guy named Sebastian Marshall wrote an excellent post called, "The Million Dollar Question". It spoke to me in a way that blog posts rarely do, and prompted me to write this post.

In the post, Sebastian is sitting by a train station, watching normal people go by, happily executing their normal lives. "I don't get to have this," he says. That's how I've always felt, too.

There are a great many benefits associated with living an unusual life. Those are fun to talk about because they can be inspiring, amusing, and provide readers with a sort of voyeuristic pleasure. Talking about the hidden downsides isn't much fun, but probably warrants some discussion, at least for the sake of being comprehensive.

On Work in Progress

It is Friday evening at work. We start to feel a small titillating sense of excitement. We pack up fast with relaxed smiles on our faces. Then we wish one another a very happy weekend. One such Friday evening a question popped up into my head: "Why do we wish happy weekend and not a happy whole week?"

It never fails to amaze me why can't all these people be equally, if not more, happy on the other days as well. What makes Saturdays and Sundays so awesome and the 5 other days so miserable.

Later most of these people proceed to spend their weekends just lazing around. They wake up late and try to "relax" for rest of the day and go out to party at night

Wait, before you come to any hasty conclusions,I am not against the weekend culture by any stretch of imagination. By all means go have your fun on the weekends, do your partying, eating-out and all that. But there are two things to consider. Why don't we make our weekends even better? and why don't we make the other 5 days awesome as well?

Treat weekends as high productivity cum high fun days , days where you get lot of time to work on what you love and also a chance to meet new and old friends . You don't have to do anything which you don't want to do.
