Being successful is one thing, but being exceptionally successful is quite another. But in order to achieve high levels of success, you must be willing to work hard. Because the theme of the modern careerist is: How can I accomplish more in less time?
Exceptionally successful people, on the other hand, have a different idea of how Saturdays and Sundays should be spent. For a week of crazy productivity, here’s how they spend their weekends.
1. They wake up early
The Apple CEO is said to get up at 3:45 a.m. every day, according to the rumor. Weekends are also included. Assuming that you must stay in bed until noon because it’s the weekend is incorrect. Despite their success, successful people still get up early because they know that time is precious and shouldn’t be wasted.
2. They read
Reading’s power cannot be disputed. As Travel Ticker’s CEO, Eimantas Balciunas explains, “Reading and staying abreast of the travel industry allows me to discover things that my competitors may have overlooked.” On weekends, even if it’s just a little bit of reading, you will be better prepared to tackle your week’s tasks.
3. They make time to pursue their interests.
People who are successful understand that pursuing success does not require them to give up their favourite pastimes. Whatever it is that you enjoy doing most in your spare time, the weekend gives you the opportunity to be creative.
4. They spend time to reflect.
As Socrates once said, “A life that is not examined is not one that is worthwhile.” Those who are successful adhere to this philosophy, using the weekends to reflect on their accomplishments and their failures. The week’s events can be reflected upon in order to determine what improvements need to be made on Monday.
5. They give something back.
Founder and CEO of Write! Alexey Chuklin says he can use the weekend to give back by showing he is a part of a community. ” To add to that, Thomas C. Corley found that 70 percent of successful people volunteer at least five hours per month in his book Rich Habits.
6. They build momentum.
People who are successful don’t settle for the average. They are always striving for excellence, and they do so by keeping the momentum going. Your most important goals can be re-focused on at the end of the week.
7. They disconnect.
Phones and emails should be put away during downtime, as successful people know. Taking a mini-break at the weekend is ideal.
8. They stay in shape.
Exercising can be a rejuvenating experience. Additionally, it gives you the chance to clear your head and embrace new ideas for the upcoming week.
9. They connect with their family.
During the week, successful people who are extremely busy may not have enough time to spend with family and friends. As a result, the weekend can be a good time to catch up with friends and family members.
10. They plan for the upcoming week.
He puts in 16 hours a day, seven days a week. But he makes sure his schedule allows him to take Saturdays off, and he uses his Sundays to plan for the upcoming week.
