I (Frankie) know for most of you the answer to that question will be "sleeping". Some will say "working" or "getting ready for work" because maybe you are working overtime or one of your regular workdays is on Saturday. Then there are those few strange ones that don't have to work, don't have to be up at 5 AM on Saturday, but are up and actually decide to do something productive. Why!!!!
A couple of years ago there is no way you would have caught me up at 5 AM on Saturday morning. Even now, it's pretty rare. I do get up around 6:30 or 7 AM on Saturdays, but not normally before that. A couple of Saturdays ago my dogs decided they just HAD to go out at 5 AM. They could not wait. My husband gets up at 4 AM through the week and he lets the dogs out when he gets up. On the weekends they usually sleep in, but not this weekend. They were ready to go. So, they came to my side of the bed and started harassing me until I had no choice but to get up.
Most people would let the dogs out and back in and then go back to bed. I can't do that. When I'm up, I'm up. That's it; no going back to sleep for me. Now, I could have gotten on Facebook or Pinterest or just messed around online for a while. I could have played games on my phone. I could have zoned out in front of the TV. I could have done a lot of things, but what I did was sit down and write blogs and posts for Coffee Talk Consulting that caught me up for the next two weeks, and it felt amazing. By the time I was done writing, the sun had come up and I went for my morning walk. When I got back everyone else was up and we started our Saturday of relaxing and not thinking about work.
I'm not saying you have to get up at 5 AM on Saturday morning and do work. What I'm saying is if you happen to be up at 5 AM on Saturday and there are some things that you could take a few minutes to get done that will make your week run smoother, then do them. Just taking that extra few minutes that you were unexpectedly given can mean a whole lot later in the week when you feel like you don't even have time to take a bathroom break much less write a blog.
Frankie and Andrea take turns sharing stories. Just good talk over a cup of coffee.
