Now that I given you a recommendation on a book to read over the weekend or made you ponder your time management, you may also just consider having a nice weekend with family and friends. That is exactly what I’ll be doing – it is firework & bonfire night or Guy Fawkes night in the UK – this guy tried to blow up parliament, he did not succeed, that is what is celebrated here. I’m often a bit fuzzy about it all, since Halloween gets mixed in with this – but I don’t really care either-way.
We have a family tradition, that we invite all our friends to join us for this evening every year. We learned that Christmas & New Year are often difficult times to meet with everyone, so we have chosen to meet on a “lesser” occasion during the year – and it works out great every year. So I will be spending my time with friends and family – I may only see once a year, and I’m looking forward to it.
What are you doing this weekend? Why not pick up the phone right now, and get some family and friends together and celebrate Guy Fawkes capture – I’m sure you can come up with a story why it might be important to you, even if you live in the US, Canada, Australia or India – it will be total BS, but who cares?
Even better is when you don’t need a reason, just get together and have a nice weekend, I know I will!
Have a nice one, Stefan.
