Most of us know that every four years, we get 366 days instead of 365. But do you know why this happens? According to my highly regarded sources, “The Gregorian calendar is closely based on the Julian calendar, which was introduced by Julius Caesar in 45 BC. The Julian calendar featured a 12-month, 365-day year, with an intercalary day inserted every fourth year at the end of February to make an average year of 365.25 days. The extra day is added in order to keep the calendar year synchronized with the seasonal year.” I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard someone lament that they want more hours in the day, but now, for one day, their hope is a reality. They get an extra twenty-four hours to get things done. So, what will you do with this Leap Day? One thing you can do with that extra bit of time is find out more about our annual user event.

Three More Ideas for This Year’s Leap Day:
- Volunteer in Your Community - Get together with a group of colleagues and volunteer in your community for a cause that matters to you. Philanthropic work brings co-workers together while doing good, so it’s a super useful way to spend that extra day.
- Make More Sales Calls - Again, you might be one of those people who feels like there aren’t enough hours in the day. Why not use that extra day to make more phone calls? You might feel like you already make as many calls as you can handle, but just imagine that out of fifty calls you make, five people are interested. Then imagine the commissions from five more deals, and you might be inspired to pick up the phone.
- Day Off - If you’re the boss, why not provide the extra day off as an incentive to employees who complete a certain task or project? If you’re an employee, why not use that saved up PTO and spend the day at the beach, hiking, or just hanging out?
