The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Do we have this problem with Day Light Savings Time?
Frustrating time change
Do you enjoy losing an hour of sleep in the springtime and gaining an hour of sleep in the fall? Are you a farmer waking up at the break of dawn and working until the last rays of dusk? Do you simply love adjusting the time on all of your clocks twice a year? Well all of these are side effects of what we in the U.S. call Day Light Savings Time.
This is where we adjust our clocks to supposedly save on energy costs for lighting during the summer and other benefits that the government lauds.
Let's get rid of it
I suggest that we abandon Day Light Savings Time all together and just split the difference and leave the clocks alone. It no longer serves any useful purpose and just leads to lost productivity for workers. Most of us are not farmers and thus do not need the extra day light.
But we've always done it that way
Most people argue against this change for the better because it goes against the status quo. Just because you have always done something a particular way is no reason to continue to do it. If you can't defend your choices with specific reasons, then you should consider the possibilities. Don't be afraid of change.
