Working for the Weekend?

Do you work on weekends, or for them?

If you don’t “work” weekends, you’re not alone. I came across Mark Schaefer’s excellent blog post about the McDonald’s social media plan and how Rick Wion hired a group of tweeple to listen and respond to customers on twitter. Take note because it’s a brilliant plan (video below).  However, just like many business people, even they don’t work on weekends.  (Notice their lack of response here)

Do you ever feel lonely on weekends when chasing your dreams?

When I send emails (or tweet at someone) on Friday evenings, it’s always interesting to watch who responds before the weekend is over. They are fellow 8pm Warriors.

(hint: usually, they are also the most successful people I know, or well on their way)

If you’re willing to save the weekends for yourself, why do you stop there?   Why is only 29% of your life good enough?  The calendar shouldn’t dictate when you do what you love.  If you don’t love what you do Monday through Friday, get a new job or create one.  That is the key to success.

You must love what you do to be successful.

Do you think Steve Jobs ignored his life’s work on weekends? Even now, while he fights significant health challenges, he still keeps his vision moving forward.

Get inspired. Love your work.

Then come join us on the weekend.
