As we get older and the list of responsibilities increases, available time for play becomes increasingly scarce.
There’s work to do, taxes to pay, meals to cook – the list goes on.
Trying to align those scarce pockets of free time between friends is even more challenging, especially when making time to share longer and more time-intensive experiences together.
Rather than haphazardly inviting friends along for things you’re already doing and pray that schedules align – start by finding out what might make them excited.
A better first question to ask is: ” What is something you would be excited to take time off to do?” Quickly followed by: “When works for you?” would yield better results.
