Ever wonder how successful people spend their Sundays? Here’s how to spend your Sundays while being productive.
Excerpt via lifehack.org: The Twitter and Square co-founder (Jack Dorsey) is notorious for 16-hour work days from Monday to Friday but says, Saturday I take off. I hike. And then Sunday is reflections, feedback, strategy and getting ready for the rest of the week. Forget Sunday blues, let’s call it a Sort-Your-Life-Out Sunday. Laura Vanderkam, author of What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend, says successful people know that weekends are actually the secret weapon in professional success: You need to hit Monday ready to go.
Here at Planoly, we couldn’t agree more! Here’s how you should spend your weekends:
Take the entire Saturday off to relax, re-group, decompress and spend it doing what you love and with who you love.
When Sunday comes along…
you have 24 hours to get your life together before your week starts BUT it doesn’t have to be stressful! You can enjoy your weekend while being productive and it’s actually easier than you think. Sleep in a little and start your day off with your favorite cup of coffee or tea, then get your laundry going. Then, all you need is about 2 hours of your entire Sunday to plan out your week, and you can enjoy the rest of your day! Heck, even catch a movie in the evening and have a nice dinner with your loved ones.
• Write your goals for the week, and then break them down by urgency. (we love using Meg’s #GSDgetshitdone note pads: see more here shop.megbiram.com )
• Look at your content calendar and plan your content by days (this season, you can already plan out your holiday content, gift guides, diy’s for Thanksgiving and Christmas).
• Upload content to Planoly and draft up your captions, then arrange them in the order you want before scheduling them.
• Another tip during the week is to take photos and collect content all week in a folder, then edit them over the weekend for the following week. Remember to use Planoly to plan out your visual content so you can map out your days, weeks, or even month in advance!
As they say… “a Sunday well spent brings a week of content.” It actually brings more than content — it brings happiness! Happy Planning and Creating!
