How to make the best out of your week

Well Monday is here again. While this of course means the weekend is over, it also means a new week of unlimited potential lies ahead. The following are ideas that will help you have a happy, productive and meaningful week:

Set Goals

Ideally on Sunday (but Monday is ok), I like to take some time out to think about the week ahead. I follow Dr Covey’s approach to goal-setting as outlined in The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This involves the following:

• Identifying Roles: identify the key roles in your life. If you haven’t given this much thought before, just write down what immediately comes to mind e.g. boss, brother, father, employee.

• Selecting Goals: next think of 2 or 3 important things you would like to accomplish in each of these roles in the coming week.

• Scheduling: this basically involves taking the above goals, and scheduling time to do them. Be flexible though – in most cases some daily adapting is also needed.

Do That Thing You Are Resisting

Almost everyone has at least one thing that they are resisting. Perhaps it is fixing something around the house, making an important phone call or re-starting the exercise habit. Get that thing done, and you will be sure to feel as if you have accomplished something this week.

Be Disciplined

Starting the week by setting goals is a bit like making new year’s eve resolutions: they are easy to make, but as time progresses it can be hard to capture the same motivation that was present when you first made them.
