The Saturday & Sunday Advantage

If business were a marathon race that lasted 1 year, how would you like to have a 104 day head start?   Talk about an advantage over your competition 🙂

There are 52 Saturdays and 52 Sundays in a given year.  That’s 104 days total that most people spend away from work!    If you could sneak in 6 hours on a Saturday and 6 hours on a Sunday, you just earned yourself 624 extra hours of awesome work product!!!

And it’s totally possible to squeeze in that extra time.  Here’s a few tips on how to do it without hurting quality time with your family/friends:



2 hours in the AM right after you wake up. HINT:  Wake up earlier than your significant other to buy yourself a little extra time.  i.e.  I love it on a Saturday if I wake up at 6AM because I can log a good 3-4 hours while my wife and kids sleep 🙂

1 hour sprint during the day if the time becomes available.

1 hour while the wife is getting ready to go out.

2 hours after your significant other falls asleep.



4 hours in the AM right after you wake up.   T. Boone Pickens once said that nothing good ever happens after midnight, I agree.  Hopefully you got a good night’s rest 🙂  Try to get up early.  Big things happen while the rest of the world sleeps!!!

1 hour sprint during the day if the time becomes available.

2 hour sprint at night while everyone else is asleep.


Voila!  You just earned yourself a 104 day head start over the competition that’s “taking the weekend off.”  🙂
