TN50 #59, The Least Productive-Reproductive Day, 14 Feb 2022

Hi Team,

Happy Monday and welcome to The Next 50 #59.  Today is the least productive day of the year, here in the United States, costing US companies $6.5 billion in productivity, according to Fortune Magazine.  Congrats to all you LA Rams fans.

When I heard about this during the Superbowl post-game show last night it got me wondering about the least productive day of the year lining up with a potentially high reproductive day of the year, Valentine’s Day.  As a married man I just assumed Valentine’s Day was a higher-than-normal day for procreation, in general.

Are you with me so far?  Least Productive meets Reproductive.  Nice little rhyme there, right?

So, after dropping a couple of my kids at Artios this morning (neither of whom were conceived on Valentine’s Day based on their birth dates) I fired up the DuckDuckGo and began my research and there it was – How Many Babies Will Be Conceived On Valentine’s Day? We Figured It Out, hat tip to TIME Magazine.

You’ll have to check out the links for the whole story but it does make me wonder how full the L&D Floors will be in 9 months.

As always, share this with your team or anyone who might find it useful.

Happy Valentine’s Day People! Alex
