A Perfect Day

I am a morbid person. I have recently been thinking about life and death. I realise that death is a respecter of noone. It can visit you when you are young. It can visit you when you are old.

Too many times in our lives, we are just cruising through. We are not truly happy. We are just making a living.

We all know that we should live each day as if it is our last. But how practical is that? If everyone was to do that, I am pretty sure that noone will be going to work. Everybody will be hanging around and doing nothing.

So as much as work is a "curse" in that sense of a word, it is still a necessary part of our lives. Without work, most men will not find meaning in their lives. Without work, there will be no food on the table. So how do we balance work and life? What would make a perfect day?

This is my thoughts on the perfect day (inclusive of work):

8.00am - Wake up and wash up
8.30am - Breakfast, coffee, read newspapers
9.30am - Leave home, DRIVE to work, listen to the radio
10.00am - Reach work, say HI to all your colleagues
10.30am - Settle down and clear all your emails
11.30am - Plan out what you are supposed to do by the end of the day. Meet boss.
12.00pm - Eat lunch with colleagues
1.00pm - Coffee to go, start finishing the work that you have planned out.
3.00pm - Tea Break, catch up on the latest news in football
3.30pm - Back to work, read your email, finish your work
4.30pm - Meet boss, clarifications
5.00pm - leave office
5.30pm - Reach home and change
6.00pm - Get out of the house and meet friends
7.00pm to 10.00pm - Chill out.
10.00pm to 11.00pm - Surf net, read books

That will be a perfect day for me =)
