What do you think abou workspace importance?

I used to leave from monday to friday. Only work, no life. The Sunday scaries. The Monday struggle. The midweek slump. When the work week fatigue starts to hit, what do you do? No matter what field of you’re in, everyone knows the feeling of trying to just make it to the weekend, and pull through another week of work-life stress. I checked spicie article how to manage your work week and it helped a little. I hope something is going to change soon cause I am really tired. What do you think about workcpace importance? Does chairman need to take care about his employees or we should take care on our own?

Don't worry too much about it. It's common situation for everybody. I hate my routine too but there is no other way to earn money so I just do what I have to do

You're welcome, but don't forget that time managment is the best way to organise your work week, so just don't forget about it.

I've worked a couple of different jobs that offered a 9/80 work plan... you work 4 days at 9 hours, Friday is 8 hours, following week is 4 days at 9 hours, Friday off. You still do 80 hours, but those 3 day weekends, every other week, are nice.

When the work week fatigue starts to hit, what do you do? No matter what field of you’re in, everyone knows the feeling of trying to just make it to the weekend, and pull through another week of work-life stress. I checked spicie article how to manage your work week and it helped a little.

When I read the title of this thread, I thought it would be about office space architecture, e.g. the open office design.

I know I've got my priorities right - but a little more cycling would be good - I'll aim for it next year.

The basic premise of Full Engagement is that optimal performance is more dependent on management of energy than management of time. I had a vague ideation of this principle, and it was solidified after reading the book.

I’m fortunate in my job that within limits, I can manage my activities around my energy levels. Furthermore, for me, cycling is a premier energy-restorative activity. For example the increased time spent commuting on the bike yields a lucrative return in energy.

I would think that time management in retirement would allow for easier and more effective management and deployment of energy. Just sayin,’ FWIW.
I like my job,

Having a mileage-based training schedule however, effectively motivates me to make time to ride. I have the opportunity to commute a minimal 14 miles one-way during the week (Commuter Rail home), and round-trip on Saturday all year-round, for about 100 miles a week. During the nice weather, I’d like to put in about 150-200 miles to train and do long rides.

In reality though, I probably get in about 20-30 miles per week during the winter, and maybe about 75-100 during the nice weather (to include early evening rides).

And they both have "0" posts. I don't recall seeing that ever before.

Posts in Foo don't get counted towards your total. Not sure if other areas are similar here at BF.

For me work environment and organizational culture are both important. I'm a freelancer but I prefer to work in the co-working spaces to communicate with other people. It is cheaper than leasing your own place and the amenities are nice. To stay motivated I often read blogs for freelancers. I just read how to manage work week on spacie. It helps me to manage my time and work better.

If you have a workspace that must mean you have a JOB. +1 to you.

I can get through it easier at 5x8 hours a day than 5x12. 4x10 hours ain't bad if'n they'll let you schedule that. Don't like the travelling around on paving or commercial paint crews. Always a gypsy there.

Sometimes swing shift is a plus. Except for getting blame for first shift screw ups. In the shipyards it was cooler and no chippers working that shift.

Less owners around on swing shift in machine shops. Less hats.

Graveyard shift however is a whole other game. Cannot do that shift. Just no way. Awake in bed by noise and sleepy at work. I don't think I'd like being on pager call . . . Like commercial refrigeration repair . . . Or emergency room doctoring (which I ain't ever gonna be qualified for anyway thank the mercy of the gods)

Some jobs you just have to keep until a paycheck if you really aren't liking it at all there. Even if you hafta paint the town with your application the next day. Notice not necessary since it ain't going onto your application. Cash your paycheck first. Then adios amigos.
