Friday Chant

The last team I worked with had a daily 8 am call.  This call’s main purpose was to outline the work accomplished yesterday and to plan the work for today. However, as you can imagine an 8 am call, every day could begin to become quite tedious.

To help overcome the monotony, I would always try to lighten the mood on Friday with the Friday song.  It was usually a simple ‘Fri-Day, Fri-Day, Fri-Day’ chant as the call got started or when I joined.  I thought it was pretty remarkable how this changed the mood and created a sense of comradery on the team.  As time passed others on the team would actually start the chant.

I don’t work with that team anymore, but even now, sometimes on a Friday I will reach out to the team with a Skype message to remind them of the day!


So, today, celebrate a little with your co-workers as you head into the weekend, after all, it is a part of God’s gift to us!

…that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man.  Ecclesiastes 3:13 ESV
