Making Every Day Saturday
With the rush, rush society, setting and maintaining the priorities we want in life often prove to be difficult. Read how one man reset his priorities and transformed his world into the life he desired.

By capitalist standards, local man Sam Crowley had achieved some of the highest success attainable in the professional world. Every day he took his place in his corner office at Third and Plum streets that overlooked the Ohio River. As the general manager of a major corporation, Crowley was responsible for about $90 million of revenue, and by societal standards, he was a big shot.

 

Then, one night, four words changed his entire life. When he got home just in time to tuck his young daughter into bed, she asked, "Is tomorrow Saturday, Daddy?" Confused, Crowley asked what she meant. With Crowley's workplace importance and professional responsibilities, Saturday had become the only day he and his daughter really had the chance to spend time together, so after a sleepless night that night, Crowley decided that he would make it his goal to make "every day Saturday," he says.

 

After a couple months, the ball really started rolling after Crowley left his company with a "rousing speech" and "not a dry eye in the place," he says. But after putting all of his effort into a franchising opportunity that failed, Crowley declared bankruptcy. What's worse is that he sucked up his pride and went back to his old company. This time, he traded in his office with a view for a cramped cubicle as he started out at the bottom rungs of the corporate ladder. Despite the drastic downward change, Crowley remained confident in his decision as the "pain" of sucking up his pride was easier than the "pain" of moving forward in a direction that only would involve one "Saturday" a week.

 

Crowley kept his dream alive, and after two years, he launched what is now the fastest growing personal development company in the world, EverydayisSaturday.com. Now, Crowley shares his story as a motivational speaker and coach. "Now my day starts with driving my daughters to school and ends with having a family dinner," he says.

 

Through EverydayisSaturday.com and the workshops, coaching and products offered through the site, Crowley provides tips for setting and achieving personal goals. One of his top pieces of advice, though, is to never give up. Even in this "microwave society" of instant gratification, a true personal or professional makeover will take years, and "the minute you quit, you lose," Crowley says.
