The start of a new week can be daunting if you had a hectic weekend. But it can also be a great time to plan for a productive and great week ahead. This is how to make it great
There is something about Monday that many people don’t enjoy. Not only does it seem like the longest day of the week for those who are working and studying but it’s also a reminder for others that they have to begin the process of hustling for career opportunities. The best way to make Monday and any other your best one is to change your mindset. Of course, not every day will be a glorious one but a positive attitude, the willingness to learn from disappointments and failures and the right people to cheer you on will help make any day worthwhile. Here’s how, like successful people, can make your week (and each time of the year), a great one:
Write specific and attainable goals you want to achieve this week: Whether it’s writing your business plan, working on your big assignment or applying for a new job. Steps you take, no matter how small they may seem, to reach your goals make a difference in how likely you will succeed because your vision needs actions to become a reality. Most importantly, start your day early and be disciplined enough to try and get as much as you planned done by the end of the week.
Do something that you really enjoy: With our hectic lifestyles, activities outside the workplace seem like a luxury. But prioritise at least an hour or two doing things that make you happy; even if it means cutting off the extra hours you put at work. There’s no harm in balancing work with play.
Spend time with your loved ones: Give your family or partner extra attention this week. Catch up with your friends over lunch or by simply calling them, not only will you make their day but it will put a smile on your face knowing that they are okay.
Give back: Find time to clean out your closet and donate what you no longer need to the less privileged.
Take things easy: We all want to be successful but don’t be too hard on yourself while you are at it. Always slay in your lane and don’t allow your peers’ social media feeds affect your confidence and the progress you are making in your life, no matter who slow you may think it is.
How do you make your week a great one?
