Wife and kid are going to be out of town for the next 2 weeks. Instead of wasting time, I’d like to do something productive. What would you do if you have say 3+ hours a day. Maybe self help, wealth creation type books, work out daily, take care of some things around the house.

Rotate these things daily. Read a few books, work out, try something you wouldn't otherwise do with a full house (e.g. yoga or meditation), do some online courses, listen to TED Talks on YouTube,...

Expand your definition of productivity first.

Rest is plenty productive. Dedicate the first 2 days of the break to not doing anything except getting extra sleep.

Maintaining relationships is productive. See local friends you usually don't see. A few nights out or happy hours (including a strip club or something) is now much more feasible.

Do some reflection on how you can be a better partner and better parent, without the day's latest highs/lows impacting your thoughts.

Just retrospect your career and life. Focus on personal finance. Plan and execute.
If you have postponed any financial planning / decision now is the time. Review your insurance, 401k, assets. Create a living will.
Go for full body massage ( in a good way). Treat yourself as well

Do absolutely nothing

Listen to wealth books or podcasts while working out. Then rest and recharge with the time left.

I have found myself stuck professionally. I pretty much embody the “digital” mantra of the firm, even before it was cool. I have developed and brought in new tech to massive direct $ benefit. My feedback is all amazing but at the end of the day my leadership doesn’t really understand what I do. I am having managers that fill more traditional manager roles passing me by even though they don’t contribute close to the same $ and certainly don’t develop any new offerings like I do. What do I do?
