Let Your Weekend Be A Weekend

Weekends are a key to a successful life. It’s time to stop working through them.

So many people don’t allow their weekend to be a weekend. Why? I think people—especially salespeople—often feel like the weekend is our only opportunity to “catch up.”

We can’t get enough of our work done during the week—because work gets in the way! The weekend is blissfully free of all the meetings, phone calls, interruptions, and last-minute emergency fire drills that take over our week.

Four Essential Routines For Success

Routines can change your life—but which ones have the biggest impact? Here are four routines I’ll never give up.

If there’s one key to success, it’s consistency. That’s why I’m a big believer in routines. I talk about them a lot!

From winning morning routines to end-of-week routines, they’re not just a key to efficiency and success—they’re important for our well-being.

But before you can focus on making a routine a habit, you have to decide which routines will be the most effective for you. For me, there are four routines that have risen to the top—they’re the best at making me feel centered, productive, and in control of my day:

  1. Get 8 hours of sleep with a regular bedtime
  2. Exercise as soon as you wake up
  3. Launch your workday with a to-do list
  4. Make time to decompress every night

Putting these routines into consistent practice so that they’re happening at the same time every day can seem daunting. But once they fall into place, everything else in your life gets easier and happier. It’s amazing! Let’s take a closer look at each routine.

Are Screens Eating Up Your Week?

Are you struggling to do the things you really want to do? The problem might be hanging on your living room wall.

I’m assuming after a long day at work you want to spend quality time with your family, catch up on a few house to-dos, read a book, maybe work on a hobby. Then, spend some time relaxing and a full night of restorative sleep, so you can meet the next day recharged and ready!
