No Plans Days as an Autistic Tool

My favorite response to the question, “What are you doing tomorrow?” is, “Absolutely nothing!”

There is so much freedom in a day that has no plans. I call them no plans days — days where I have no scheduled meetings, social events, appointments … NOTHING.

It all began when I decided to stop pursuing relentless growth and change in my private practice. It felt really nice to not push so hard. It also meant I didn’t need to meet with so many fellow therapists and colleagues to be talking about our businesses and how to constantly improve.
