How You Spend Your Extra Hour Matters

Clocks are moving back today for Daylight Savings and we get something we’ve asked for:  an extra hour in the day!

I am fascinated by how people use their extra hour.

  • Many will go to bed at the same time, wake up at the same time, and get an extra hour of sleep.
  • Some will sleep the same number of hours, but wake up early to a day with one more hour.
  • Others will stay up later working on something special.

How will you use your extra hour?

Do more research?  Write a blog post? Spend extra time with family?

Or, just watch more TV?

What you choose to do with your hour makes a statement.

8pm Warriors will use it.  Others will lose it.

Have a useful night,

A Salute to the 8pm Warriors Among Us


Still in the office at 8pm?

Unless your workday begins at noon, that’s a sure sign you’re probably working on something important.  It’s probably also a good sign sign that the project is probably in great hands.

While it’s probably not healthy to work in the office 8 to 8 every day, sometimes duty calls…and it’s the special people that answer.

Whether it be the deadline for that new building project finance package, the EMR implementation that has go-live around the corner, the new administrator helping to rally the staff on the NOC and PM shifts, or the hundreds of other scenarios we see at Clear Medical Solutions…it is important that someone takes the ball and runs with it.

You know who you are, and thanks for giving it everything you got when something important is on the line.  I’ve taken part in quite a few “after hours” adventures, and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Thanks for being great, and if you ever need help we’ll be “8pm Warriors” right with you. 


Special thanks to our agents at our Clear Medical Agency division.  I am continually amazed and inspired at what you accomplish long after most have gone home for the day.  Keep up the great work, you’re starting to make a huge difference in the lives of the consultants, nurses, therapists, and hospital leaders you work with.
