Did You Have A Wonderful Time Over The Labor Day Weekend?

Labor Day in the United States and Canada is celebrated on the first Monday in September. It also marks the “unofficial end of summer“.

People who have procrastinated all summer, can use this opportunity to squeeze in as much family related activities such as barbecues, picnics and road trips. Of course, living in California we don’t experience the change in seasons as much as someone living in the Midwest or Northeast.

As soon as you show up to work on Tuesday, the most common question would be “Did you have a wonderful time over the long weekend?” Even your boss maybe interested in hearing your response.

The first of May is a national, public holiday in many countries across the world. It is celebrated as “Labor Day”, “International Workers’ Day” or some similar name.

Historical significance of Labor day

The date of May 1 emerged in Europe and Asia as a holiday for celebration of Laborers and working class. The US Democratic President Grover Cleveland was concerned that a labor holiday on May 1 would strengthen socialist and anarchist movements that backed the May 1 commemoration around the globe. He publicly supported the September Labor Day holiday as a less inflammatory alternative.

What does Labor Day mean to you?

Irrespective of your geographic location in the world or your preference to celebrate May or September as Labor Day; the fact remains that this is a day for us to reflect on what the fruits of our labor yield; and how we can optimize life to start our Financial Freedom Countdown.

Distribution of working days and holidays in a year shows more working days compared to holidays. Currently the average worker is spending more than 2/3rd of their life being a wage slave and not having control of their lives. At the end of the day; even if you earn 7 figures or 8 figures at a job, but still need to show up at a particular time and place; you have still not achieved Financial Freedom.

Although it is inevitable to start with a job; the goal is to improve Human Capital and accelerate Financial Freedom  You then need to invest wisely and prevent catastrophic failures to take control of your life.

We spend a lot of time working all through the week pining for the weekend. The ratio is skewed badly towards more days where we do not control our own time. Achieving Financial Freedom enables you to have a wonderful time over the Labor Day weekend.
