I Love Tuesday

Do you have a favorite day of the week?

I’m a little weird.

But you knew that already, didn’t you!?

I like different days for different reasons. I love Friday because, usually, depending on the time of year and what extra projects Crystal and I have decided to add to our world, Friday is our together day.

Sunday is just always amazing because it’s when we get the extended family together to reconnect with Jesus again.

Monday brings the thrill of a new work week. I love Monday a lot.

Wednesday is always Big and Bad. Most Wednesday’s I need to recover from as they are filled to the max.

But Tuesday’s…

Tuesday’s have become my favorite day of the week. I feel most relaxed on Tuesday, that is if my routine goes the way I want it to.

I’m a creature of habit and believe your best productivity happens when you live through routines. Just the thought of that may drive you crazy but it’s my jam. Tuesday I get up super early, go to the gym and destroy a workout. Around 9 AM I’m at Starbucks where I work for the morning writing my sermon for the coming Sunday.

I can get so much brainwork done on Tuesday. Words seem to just flow like a faucet you cannot turn off and I attribute almost all of it to the fact that I like things to be routine. I don’t like surprises. I don’t like to be spontaneous. I like to plan. I want to know what’s coming well in advance but believe that life can’t be fully lived that way so what I do is plan for the unpredictable by living most of my life in a routine.

When the majority of my time is spent and focused on my routine, I find that I can flex to the unpredictable when it arrises. It is much easier to do this because I am planned and moving forward through predictable moments that I’ve planned in the past.

I tell my wife all the time, I could eat the same things, I could wake up the same, time, follow the same patterns, all the time, because I know it is there that I become my best. And the best is what I’d like to be, all the time.

How about you, when are you at your best?
