Living for the Weekday

Living for the Weekday:

What Every Boss and Employee Needs to Know about Enjoying Work and Life

We live in a world of disengagement. According to The Gallup Organization, three out of four people are at some level of disengagement in their life. The people in this group have chosen to see their work as a necessary evil to survive. The result is often an entire career waiting for time away from work. They’re waiting for vacation. They’re waiting for Friday. And every single week, they’re living for the weekend.

It doesn’t take a mathematician to figure out the numbers are against us. With seven days in a week, disengaged employees spend five miserable days living for the weekend. Simply put, our work consumes too much of our time to not find ways to become more engaged. We can sit around and wait for the perfect job to come along. We can sit around and wait for the perfect boss to come along. Or, we can enjoy the power that comes with controlling our own destiny.

It’s our life, and the responsibility to find ways to start living for the weekday as much as we’re living for the weekend is in our hands. By taking a proactive approach to finding ways to start living for the weekday, we’ll not only find more ways to enjoy our life, we’ll contribute to an overall culture of employee engagement.

The first step we must take is to change the way we see our professional life and personal life coming together. Clint Swindall understands the elements that bring it all together, and can help your organization answer the following questions:

  • What five aspects of life must be intertwined to bring about true life happiness?
  • What simple steps can we take to add to a culture of employee engagement?
  • What can we do immediately to enhance our professional and personal lives?

We all look forward to the weekend, but those who truly enjoy life have found a way to look forward to Monday as much as they look forward to Friday. This program will move your audience one step closer to employee engagement by moving them one step closer to a balanced life.
