It has become a mantra, “Thank God It’s Friday!” and for so long, I have wondered why the heck that should be…let’s face it, there is no difference. People still go to work on Fridays in most countries and they still close from work at the same time as on other work days and still…”TGIF!” everywhere.
Okay I get it…it is the start of the weekend! Great weekend indeed except, there’s still nothing overly fantastic about the weekends. Yes, you get to attend parties and attend to many family and friends invitations but, let’s face it…many people suffer a lot from the so called, “weekend stress”. There is always the rush (especially unconsciously; to get everything done in 48 hours), why then is Friday a big deal?
A lot of people do not like their jobs and so, whatever would keep them home or away from it is very welcome. I remember that years back, US estimates show that they lost 100million dollars each year because of the Friday rush. Maybe the estimate is higher even now. But, if you owned your own company or you had a job you liked, wouldn’t it be very difficult to jump at “Fridays”? even a teeny bit?
Get a life people or get a new mantra. This whole Friday chants are…biting on my nerves. Find something that keeps you truly happy and really, you wouldn’t care what day of the week it is. All you would always think about is making a difference and staying happy.
Anyway, HAPPY FRIDAY TO YOU!
