Live Every Week Like It’s Shark Week

Shark Week has always been a personal favorite of mine. I don’t quite know when my obsession started, but the fact of the matter is, shark week is awesome. I look forward to it for months, until finally…..it’s here! (Side Note: Did anyone watch Voodoo Shark last night?? Because you really should)

Anyway. I got to thinking. Every week should be like Shark Week. No, sadly I’m not talking about watching back to back hours of shark filled TV, I’m talking about bottling the excitement and anticipation shark week brings and spreading it out throughout the entire year.

It’s so easy to get bogged in life, between work and errands, more work, more emails…you get the picture. I could sit at my desk 24/7 365 and still have more work to do. Unless you’re one of those extreme workaholics or one of the lucky ones who truly enjoy their job 100% of the time, you need other activities, and people in your life to keep you sane. You need things to look forward to, things to chase after.

I’m going to start challenging myself to build “shark week” excitement into my life. It could be something as simple as planning a few more Happy Hours with friends or booking dinner reservations at the newest restaurant with the republican. Some weeks will be more exciting than others, because each week has it’s own goals but you can’t push forward if you have anything enticing you to get there!

What are my big weeks? Taking the GRE, applying to MBA programs, launching two new organizations and hopefully buying a new car. So many exciting things, so many “shark weeks” to look forward to.

So. How are you going to start living every week like it’s Shark Week? Tell me your plans in the comments!
