What a dif­fer­ence an hour makes. I must be a rar­ity in that the end of Day­light Sav­ings ac­tu­ally makes me happy. I’ve al­ways been a morn­ing per­son, so the ex­tra hour at the be­gin­ning of the day suits me just fine.

I know it won’t last, and it’s the har­bin­ger of darker days but for the mean­time, I’m mak­ing the most of it.

And it’s as­ton­ish­ing just how much you can get done in an hour. By the time mid­day rolls around, I feel like I’ve al­ready had a whole day to get stuff done, and the next eight or nine hours are bonus time.

Which does make me won­der about the whole con­cept of time. Why have I not added that ex­tra hour my­self and just got on and got things done?

Why do we need an event or a dead­line or a new year to get mo­ti­vated?

So my chal­lenge this week is to re­set my own clock, and make the most of ev­ery sin­gle hour I’ve got, not just the ex­tra one I’ve got at the be­gin­ning of the day.

– Shan­non.
