Can We Have a 34-hour Day?

I figured I need about ten extra hours in the day. Ten extra hours would mean I could get more...done.

I know I'm not the first person to lament this. In fact, isn't this a Universal Lament? I wish I had more hours in the day! We hear it all the time.

So, I propose we pass legislation or something. We go until 17 o'clock, instead of stopping at twelve. And after 17 o'clock, we can start over at 1 o'clock. Which basically means, from the time I get up at 5:45, to the time I go to bed at 10:30 pm, I will have five more hours to get stuff done. It also means I will have five more hours of SLEEP.

Sounds like a win-win to me!! What do y'all think???

I know, I know. If I planned my day better and scheduled and charted and graphed it out, etc. etc. yadda yadda yadda I'd have more time for the things I need to do vs want to do. I totally get it. But if you're like me, and you resist structure, and being regimented, well, you need more hours in the day.

Hey, I can dream, can't I???

Some of us don't respond well to too much structure. Plus, all that time spent scheduling and graphing can be used to get things done.

If we expand the hours in the day, however, the work day cannot expand to fill it. Those have to be EXTRA hours, in which we catch up on other things that need to be done, and on sleep.

Sounds great to me! I'm working so much that I rarely have time for myself!

I am structured. I am organized. It doesn't help--we still need more time to get it all done. But honestly, I don't want to work any harder or any longer. Maybe, just maybe, one day I'll be able to chill out in my own house.
