Some months ago I made a decision that weekends would not simply run into the rest of the week.....instead I would take weekends off. Unless of course there is a craft fair or similar but even these make a change from the usual routine.
Instead I ditch the usual ToDo List on a Friday evening and put it away until Monday. If I haven't got anything specific planned then I write out a new ToDo List just for the weekend but it only has tasks that I want to do and not tasks that I feel I must do. Productivity is focussed on me, not my businesses.
This weekend Patch and I are on our own and have the house to ourselves so I've started with a list of things I want to think about - some personal, some business. These are problems that I need to resolve and decisions that I need to make and they deserve all important thinking time and weekends are ideal for finding that time.
So I go into the weekend armed with a list of things I want to get done and a list of things I need to think about. I have clarity and I feel relaxed. It's going to be a good weekend I reckon!
