14 Things Successful People Do On Weekends...
1. Make time for family and friends.
This is especially important for those who don’t spend much time with their loved ones during the week.
Everyone needs to do it, and if you can’t work out 4 to 5 days during the workweek, you need to be active on weekends to make up for some of that time. It’s the perfect opportunity to clear your mind and create fresh ideas. Me, I ride my bike!!!
3. Pursue a passion.
“Successful people make time for what is important or fun,”
4. Short Holiday.
Getting away for the weekend provides a great respite from the grind of an intense week at work.
The most successful people avoid e-mail for a period of time, I'm not suggesting the whole weekend or avoiding the need, but creating some "disconnected time/phone off" is important.
This is a great way to donate some of your time to serving good, and also helping others. Volunteering can be found in unlimited variations, find something you love and see if there is a way you can put those skills and passion to good use that isn't part of your work regime. This is a great way to network and to meet others with similar interests at the same time.
7. Avoid chores.
Every weekend has a few have-to-dos, but you want these to take the minimum amount of time possible so try and allocate some mid-week time and stay on top of things during the week, so that come the weekend, a quick tidy over and your done and ready for playtime.
Planning makes people more effective, and doing it before the week starts means you can hit Monday ready to go, and means you’ll give clear directions to the people who work for you, so they will be ready to go, too.
Humans are social creatures, and studies of people’s experienced happiness through the day finds that socializing ranks right up there, not too far down below sex. Go out with friends and family, or get involved in the local community.
10. Gardening/crafts/games/sports/cooking/cultural activities.
This is especially important for those cooped up in an office all week.
Networking isn't an event for a successful person, it's a lifestyle.
Truly successful people make time on weekends to appreciate what they have and reflect on their happiness and accomplishments.
Classes and private instruction offer a bespoke approach to insight and peace of mind.
We live in a competitive world, and Peak performance requires managing downtime, too- with the goal of really recharging your batteries. That’s how the most successful people get so much done.
