First of all, I’ll never in my entire life be able to spell that word. Something inside of me refuses to get it right and I always Google the proper spelling. 

Ok, with that out of the way, I am coming to the end of this week with an appreciation for the rhythms of work and life. Often after a long and busy day I find myself needing a slightly quieter or calmer day after. If I have a day that things just fell apart and it was horrible, I’ve come to expect the next day is likely to be better. Reversion to the mean is a concept I think about often. If a day is absolutely fantastic I enjoy it for what it is, am thankful, and recognize the next day; taking in the averages of all my days; is unlikely to be as good. Imagine my surprise, then, when I have two great days in a row. I consider those a bonus.

This also works in the opposite way. On days where I have a horrible day, the next day is likely to be at least average.
