From a business standpoint, you might think the concept of this article is crazy. You could be right. But from a personal standpoint, it’s not so nuts. The value of your weekend directly effects the value of your work week. Here are three reasons I believe this is true…
Weekends provide motivation: Now you could argue that it’s hard to create memories without a way to pay for them, but let’s look at it from the other side. For those of you that crush it from 9 to 5 every Monday thru Friday, there’s no better inspiration to work hard than the people you care about. You love making memories with the people who mean the most to you, which makes you work even harder to be able to repeatedly provide those types of experiences.
Weekends keep you going: Whether you’re working hard around the house or taking it easy with a new book, weekends provide you with a chance to catch up. Sometimes you have errands to take care of and sometimes you just need to relax and recharge. Without a chance to recharge, your work week can really take its toll on you by Friday afternoon.
Weekends get you ready: Having the opportunity to relax and recharge is fantastic. Being able to power down from work mode and have time to slowly readjust and get ready for Monday morning is even more amazing. Sunday nights are a great time to spend a few minutes focusing on your week ahead so you can be ready to knock another week out of the park.
