#Sundaying#Saturdaying #Tuesdaying why I do it?


Whenever I run in to someone I know these days, people always make a comment about if I work or not. “Lahiru, you are always #Sundaying#Saturdaying #Tuesdayingwhen do you everwork?”, the reality is that I work all the time and for the last year and a bit I have not taken a vacation ( otherthan public holidays, and weekends) but if someone was to look at my FB wall it will be full of pictures of my #Sundaying#Saturdaying #Tuesdaying… how is this possible? And why do I do it?

Its possible because I live in Sri Lankaa island that is fairly spectacular. Where most locations that you might want to run off for a break is just a few around the corner. Its easy to drive up to a lovely beach, or get up to the hills. So if you want to do it, the only person whose stopping it is you.

And why I do it because I love to, and as a CEO your generally under a lot of preassure; and as any CEO knows that you have to find your own little way to unwind. Driving a few hours for a night to be at a place that I love helps me deal with work related stress, and this helps me be a better CEO, friend and a overall nice guy.


Also a firm beliver in livinglife to the fullest, so try to do things that I love to do with the free time I have.

Dr. Douglas McKenna, an industrial and organizational psychologist who help establish Microsoft’s executive and management development group in the 1990s, stated that its super important to to deal with stress in an effective way (which could be different things for different people); if they continually manage to do this they can more easily start thinking and reasoning clearly, free of stress responses (FrobesArticle; Stress Management for the CEO)


Making use of the free time you have to relive stress is critical in handling pressure when push comes to shove.  This end of the day makes you better at dealing with both your work and private life.  So if your not doing it already take the time to figure out what works for you! And encourage people around to take some time off and do what they love! It will make them a lot more productive and help you reach your targets much sooner..
