#16: Only Seven More Hours to Go
We’ve all been there: we’re so ready for our shift at work to end, or for the day to end, that we keep telling ourselves, only so and so more hours to go. It’ll all be over in so and so hours. No matter how bad things seem at the moment, it’s only temporary; in so and so hours, we’ll be able to go home and put this day behind us.
During a long and hard shift, perhaps the only thing that can help us keep our cool is knowing that it’ll all be over soon. Even if we still have seven hours to go, we convince ourselves that seven hours isn’t that long. We’ve all been there – don’t tell me you’ve never calculated how many hours you’ve got left until your workday/school day was over.
