10 Weekend Activities of Highly Successful People

Written by James Irvine

After 5 hectic weekdays, do successful people still bombard their weekends with loads of work and continue to fill their calendar with business plans and proposals? Do they continue to hold meetings the same way as they do every weekday? I am sure you are eager to find out the weekend activities of the highly successful people. The following discussion about successful people will trigger you to do more and cultivate behaviors of highly successful people into your weekend activities.

1. Relaxing in the weekends is alright

If you are the kind that work 15 hours a day, and still go about the same during weekends, know that successful people do not do this. Instead of working the same way they do in the weekdays, successful people relax their mind to get a booster for the coming week. If successful people want to entertain themselves, they do it during the weekends.

2. Strike Balance

Do successful people do household chores? Yes they do. On weekends, successful people fix their homes that might have been disorganized during the week due to too much office work, and find time to play around with their friends and families. Although they take work seriously, family and health still more important than their work. During this period, they see doctors and chiropractors, and hence, strike balance between office, home, and health. There is no point in working all day and falling sick in the end. How will they eat the fruit of their labor for if they do not strike a balance?

3. Wake Very Early

Successful people keep to some daily routine like waking up early, doing some road works if they do before and so on. They believe they are ahead of the world if they wake up so early. With this, they can plan and think of the way forward in what they are doing. Successful people are geared by the research that says our brain functions the most when we wake up. This tells us that the brain has relaxed for some time, and has prepared itself for a new work.

4. Think More Deeply

During weekends, successful people are not void of deep thoughts. Some parts of the weekends are used to find ways to be more productive at work. They think deeply of the way forward, and draw charts on how to do better.

5. Prepare For the Week

Successful people do not joke with their weekends, they take it seriously as it has the most time to determine their weekdays structure. For successful people, thinking how to make better use of weekdays surfaces during the weekend. They make weekdays’ to-do lists, plan meetings and events, and schedule other things to have a great week ahead.

 

6. Volunteering

During the weekend, successful people go out to volunteer. You see them helping community to achieve some things. They say they have been appreciated by those around them, and so, find time in the weekend to return the favour back to society.

7. Do not multitask

Even though successful people think of weekdays during the weekends, that does not give them the headache to do some parts of weekdays work. They leave office work for the office, but plans of doing it better during the week. In this regard, office work is differentiated from household chores.

8. Read a lot of books

So many books have been left untouched during the weekdays, weekends are good for successful people to pick them up and peruse. They brighten their weekend activities with a little reading time, get motivational books to read, and imbibe some lessons from the scriptures. No wonder successful people view things from so many perspective, it is because they stand on the shoulders of giants, and those giants are books.

9. Plan for Monday

Successful people always take Monday important. You notice them planning for it on Sundays. Place some files they need to show colleagues at work in their bags. They want Mondays to be a trigger for the other days, and do not want to be inactive on Monday.

10. Just Like Weekdays

You cannot find successful people doing what will not benefit them during the weekend, just the way they do during the weekdays. They spend their weekend activities with pleasure and do not involve in what is not necessary.

The above discussion talks about the various weekend activities that the highly successful engage in. If we are looking to succeed in our life, we must have good time management skills. This means that what we do for our weekend activities can determine how we eventually turn out in life.
