Make the most of your weekends

Scott says, "We need to plan ahead for our weekends, so we can get the most out of our time together." On Saturday morning he asked everyone over breakfast what they wanted to do that day. Each of us got to write down what we wished to do, and then we made a plan so that everyone was able to do them..and some of the things, like a bike ride...we did together.
Scott just sent me this article, and it backs up what he said about making the most of our weekend, so we don't end up in front of the TV.

What successful people know about weekends
July 12, 2012

(MoneyWatch) We all look forward to weekends. But are you really making the most of them?

Few people are, because we tend not to think about weekends holistically. Here's one way to look at it: There are 60 hours between 6 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Monday. Even if you sleep for 24 of those hours, that leaves 36 hours for other things. That's the equivalent of a full-time job. Yet many of us hit Monday morning with a vague sense of having squandered our precious downtime on activities that didn't help us recreate.

That's a problem because, in our competitive world, weekends are actually the secret weapon of workplace success. The most successful people know that to be truly productive, you need to hit Monday refreshed, relaxed and ready to go. (See related post: What the Most Successful People Do Before Breakfast). The only way to do that is to create weekends that rejuvenate you rather than exhaust or disappoint you.

So how do you do that? It's a three-step the rest at: WEEKEND
