Transform your home and your life.

Over 2 million people have read a Forbes article that talks about 14 things that successful people do on weekends. Perhaps we could add one more thing, and that would be sitting back and admiring the work done by Rite Price Roofing to transform your home.

Laura Vanderkam, author of ‘What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend’ (Portfolio, 2012), says successful people know that weekends are actually the secret weapon in professional success. “You need to hit Monday ready to go,” she says. “To do that, you need weekends that rejuvenate you, rather than exhaust or disappoint you.”

Dale Kurow, M.S., Executive Coach, says successful people usually spend their weekends participating in a “combination of family activities with their kids and spouse, errands, and creative activities to exercise the right side of their brain.”

Penelope Trunk, a career coach and author of ‘Brazen Careerist: The New Rules for Success’, says: “A highly successful person is very focused on what they want to be doing. The weekend and the week look very similar: They are focused on creating the life they want.”

Here are the things successful people do (or should be doing) on weekends

  1. Make time for family and friends – This is especially important for those who don’t spend much time with their loved ones during the week. Everyone needs to do it, and if you can’t work out 4 to 5 days during the workweek, you need to be active on weekends to make up for some of that time. It’s the perfect opportunity to clear your mind and create fresh ideas.
  2. Pursue a passion – Successful people make time for what is important or fun. They make space for activities that add to their life balance.
  3. Vacation – Getting away for the weekend provides a great respite from the grind of an intense week at work.
  4. Disconnect – The most successful people avoid e-mail for a period of time. Not the whole weekend, but even just a walk without the phone can feel liberating. Take a ‘tech Sabbath.
  5. Volunteer – A lot of successful people participate in fundraising events. “This is a great way to network and to meet others with similar interests,” he says. “The visibility also helps in branding a successful person as philanthropic.”
  6. Avoid chores – Every weekend has a few have-to-dos, but you want these to take the minimum amount of time possible. Create a small window for chores and errands, and then banish them from your mind the rest of the time.
  7. Plan – Planning makes people more effective, and doing it before the week starts means you can hit Monday ready to go, and means you’ll give clear directions to the people who work for you, so they will be ready to go, too. Successful people plan their month and year because “if you get stuck on short-term lists you don’t get anything big accomplished.”
  8. Socialize – Humans are social creatures, and studies of people who experience happiness through the day rate socializing near the top of their list. Go out with friends and family, or get involved in the local community.
  9. Gardening/crafts/games/sports/cooking/cultural activities – This is especially important for those cooped up in an office all week. For the pure joy, some people find great satisfaction in creating beautiful gardens. Theatre, opera and sporting events can also enrich the spirit.
  10. Network – Networking isn’t an event for a successful person, it’s a lifestyle. Wherever they go and whatever they do, they manage to connect with new people
  11. Reflect – Truly successful people make time on weekends to appreciate what they have and reflect on their happiness and accomplishments.
  12. Meditate – Classes and private instruction help to gain insight and peace of mind. This can help equip yourself for success in a tough world.
  13. Recharge – We live in a competitive world. Peak performance requires managing downtime, with the goal of really recharging your batteries. That’s how the most successful people get so much done.
