We give back, starting with our team and our customers. It’s part of our core values. We build beautiful software that puts those hours back into your day that normally evaporate while you struggle to find data in spreadsheets and antiquated software.
One of the most satisfying things one of our customers has told us is that Molecule has given him back two working hours every day! TWO. HOURS. That’s a lot of time.
This got us to thinking: what would we do with 120 extra minutes in our day? So, we surveyed our team, and they had some good ideas. We would love to hear what you would do with Molecule at your disposal, adding two hours per day to spend, as Westley would say, “as you wish.”

The house reno list grows bigger by the week. Tackling this would burn down some of the debt that has built up over the years and earn some points with the wife.
My family and I enjoy athletics, but I'm not always able to make all the different events spread across our three kids. Two extra hours a day would definitely allow me to catch up on some missed family time.
Finally, I would certainly catch up on reading and podcasts that I subscribe to so I can keep the mental muscles in shape.

One thing I’d like to do this year, although I don’t know if it’s possible because I don’t speak Japanese, is to try to find some way to teach kids how to write software.
I could probably easily pull this off if I was fluent in Japanese, but since I’m not, I’m going to start with making friends at various meetups here (Hacker News meetup, gaijins in startups, etc.) and take it from there.
In more general terms, just share knowledge.

I would go to the gym and get the beach bod I always wanted. I'd go to the grocery store and cook more often. In the summer there would be more time for golf and basketball after work. I'd be able to commit more time to working on a side job, like real estate. Spending more time with family and friends would lead to a happier out of work lifestyle.

I’d get a hell of a lot of work done building out and then enjoying my garage workshop. And, hopefully be in shape again like I was about 10 years ago.

I’d split the time practicing on my piano and guitar. I've always wanted to play a live show, but you’ve gotta get practice in first.

By leaving early, I would be able to beat traffic. Thus, it would end up being more than just two extra non-work hours of my day.
With the extra time, I would have more time for entertainment purposes rather than spending the entire evening finishing up daily chores and maintenance around the house (all while feeling exhausted from the traffic).

Dad of two in middle and high school, we leave the house before sunrise to beat the first bell. After a day of slaying pixels and stylesheets, it's after sunset! Gaining two hours a day just may allow for more time outside to bike, longboard, or skate at the skatepark.

Two extra non-work hours is more time I have to spend with my loved ones, and to work on improving myself - whether it be physically, mentally, spiritually, emotionally. Always strive to be a better individual than you were yesterday.

The dad in me wants to say spend every second with my two boys. But, I also would not mind finally building that brick oven in my backyard for baking sourdough bread. Maybe shake the dust off my drums and bring the skills back up to rock'n'roll days. Naps are amazing too.
Joe | VP, Product Implementation
As a new father, I would spend it with my son. Or sleep. I need so much sleep right now.
Melanie | Marketing
So. Many. Options. Write, read, spend more time learning Italian (DuoLingo is great, but I could do so much more!), see friends more often, learn to cook without starting a fire, and oh, and exercise. Ummmm, I might need five hours rather than two.
