“The question of what you’re doing this weekend often doesn’t get asked until Friday sneaks up on you, and sometimes until everyone rolls out of bed on Saturday morning.” The problem with this is that it means we often end up doing nothing, with nothing meaning “weekend hours parked on the sofa watching television we didn’t mean to watch, surfing Web sites we didn’t plan to surf and checking email in an inefficient manner.”
What’s the solution?
That’s what Laura Vanderkam’s new e-book ‘What the most successful people do on the weekend: A short guide to making the most of your days off’ is all about.
She says: “Success in a competitive world requires hitting Monday refreshed and ready to go. The only way to do that is to create weekends that rejuvenate you rather than exhaust or disappoint you” and to do that “requires thinking about weekends differently than we’re used to, and, in many cases than at first we want to.”
So how can we be strategic about what we do at the weekends?
Vanderkam suggests 3 ways to do this:
- Plan – “A good weekend needs a plan.”
- Minimize – “Minimize the Have-To-Do’s.”
- Plan again – “Plan the week ahead”.
One of the great things about this short e-book is that the suggestions found in it are so simple to do. The challenge is actually incorporating them so that you make the most of your weekends.
