The successful man’s weekend

Sean BowerFor most people, weekends are a time to slack off, wake up late, party, and forget about work.

But then again, most people aren’t successful, are they?

If you truly want to achieve greater success in your life, every day counts. Here’s how the successful person spends the weekend…

While sleeping in until noon, laying in bed all day watching television, and completely forgetting about the previous and upcoming weeks aren’t exactly a healthy way for you to spend your weekend, you also don’t have to work 7 days a week.

Weekends can be both a time to focus as well as relax.

Here are the 5 aspects of the successful man’s weekend:

1. Balance

Weekends are a perfect time to recalibrate and harmonize your work life with your home life. If you’ve been spending too much time at the office, make sure you allow yourself ample time to enjoy your family and friends. Having a successful personal will allow you to both perform more successful in your professional life and enjoy the benefits of success much more.

2. Rejuvenation

The workweek can grind anybody down. And not giving yourself time to recover can wind up digging you into a big hole. Use the weekend however you need to in order to rejuvenate yourself. Do whatever it takes: spa day, fishing trip, meditation, night out on the town, etc.

3. Focus

Multitasking has become somewhat of a norm, but it can be detrimental as well. On the weekends, make sure you focus on one thing at a time. Have a plan for the weekend, focus on each task or activity, and keep up a sustained level of efficiency. That doesn’t mean constantly working; it simply means getting the most out of your weekend.

4. Preparation

Instead of using the weekend to forget about last week, reflect on it. Then, prepare for the next one. I’m not talking about planning out every hour of every day. But simply mentally preparing yourself for the week ahead (and learning lessons from the previous one) can do wonders for your mood, efficiency, and overall production.

5. YOU

The successful man uses the weekend to better himself. Stay active, get the rest you need and may have lost during the week without sleeping in too late, make time for your hobbies and family, and be sure to embrace nothingness rather than worrying about jam-packing your weekend with plans just so you don’t miss out.

Sure, weekends can be about rest and relaxation. But you’ll be amazed at how much more you enjoy your weekends if you can also put yourself in a better position to be successful the next week.
