Happy Monday Everyone,

I hope you all had a great weekend.  I recently read an article about how successful business people spend their weekends.  I wish I could find the link for you but I can’t seem to find it, sorry.

The article talked about how successful business people know that the best way to be prepared for work on Monday is to use their weekends doing things that rejuvenate them.  From Friday at 6pm to Monday at 6am there are 60 hours for you to do all the things that will refresh you and prepare you for a new week.

You should do things that you have to do during the week as much as possible and only those chores that you can’t do another time, on the weekend.  You should limit “have-to’s”  to only a couple of hours on the weekend.  Spend the rest of your time enjoying what you love, like gardening, sailing, or spending quality time with family and friends.  Schedule time so it will be comfortable for you.  Get that extra rest you need, read that book you have been dying to open, or just play with your children/grandchildren, but no business!  No laptops, No email and No Business calls!  The time is yours so ENJOY!  (If you do get a brainstorm got down a few notes and put it away.)

The article suggested that you just brainstorm and write down everything you can think of including all the big and little things you would like to do, places you would like to visit, people you would like to spend time with and books you would like to read.

This weekend, plan a day trip, go to the movies, go to church or go visit your mom.  Take Time for Yourself, you deserve it, you need it and it’s yours!  So tell me, what are you going to do this weekend?

This is a beautiful spot at a local park that I enjoy visiting.

Have a Great Week Planning your Weekend!
