5 Things Successful People like Bill Gates do on Weekends to Make Their Mondays More Productive

What do you think about what successful people like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Mark , Tim Cook, Jack Dorsey, etc do despite having a very busy schedule and non-stop working environments?

There are hundreds of thousands of daily habits you can to stay inspired and boost your productivity, but how do you decide on which ones to focus on?

Here’s what some of the most successful people do on weekends to make their weekdays easier and more productive:

Catch up on sleep

Your body (and brain) won’t perform at its best if you don’t give it proper rest. One of the most common habit of such people, their sleep times average out at seven hours and 29 minutes per night.

Tim Cook, Bill Gates, Jack Dorsey and Jeff Bezos all say they get at least seven hours of sleep per night.

But it can be hard to get in seven and a half hours, especially if you have a demanding job that often requires you to stay at the office late. If you find yourself falling behind during the week, use the weekend to catch up.

Spend time with loved ones

If you feel guilty about how little time you’re able to spend with your family and friends Monday through Friday, you’re not alone. Whether you choose to work out with your spouse or take your kids to the park, doing it during the weekend will save you from feeling any guilt during the weekdays.

Keep in mind, however, that if you need to get some work done over the weekend, aim to do it Saturday morning so you’re not thinking about it during the rest of the weekend.

Strategize on the week ahead

Successful people always strategize on their week ahead so they can get a head start on Monday. This can mean anything from blocking off a whole half-day on the weekend to spending 10 minutes on Sunday evening looking at next week’s calendar and taking notes on what you have coming up.

Once Monday morning hits, you’ll be 110 ready.

Make time what energizes

While successful people make plans to ensure they don’t waste their days, they also make a point to relax — and there are plenty of hours in the weekend to do that.

Many will eat breakfast at a more leisurely pace than weekdays allow, curl up on the couch with some books, meditate or work out.

Other activities include more partying, more physical activities like rock jumping, paddle boarding and boat races.

Set aside alone time and reflect

Reflection and alone time is healthy for your mind and body. It will also help you to better reach your goals. Successful people use the weekend to reflect or meditate on things that are important to them (how can they make more time for those things?), things that have been bothering them (what are some good solutions?) and their career (how can they improve their skills and performance?).

A Harvard study found that people who spent 15 minutes at the end of the day reflecting about lessons they learned performed 23 per cent better compared to those who didn’t.

Other studies have found that self-reflection can help you become a happier, more productive and less burned out person. Even if you struggle with the idea of self-reflection, at least try doing it on the weekends. It won’t be long before you start to see some of the benefits.

Well, apart from other five habits, my personal is to watch a good movie or a show or some episodes of some good seasons like Game of Thrones or The Flash or The Prison Break, etc to name a few.
