TGIF! Is this your mantra for today? Most people can’t wait for Friday to signal a time to switch off and retreat from the working week. Our thoughts become overtaken with weekend plans and it can be hard to concentrate on the task at hand. So how can we stay focused on Friday? Here are some essential activities to help keep your Friday focused.
Reflect. Take time to acknowledge your accomplishments as well as what you could have done better. Set realistic goals for how you can improve your performance and use that happy Friday feeling to motivate you into action.
Complete. You may be tempted to put things off until Monday, but this is not a great idea. You will likely spend the weekend with that task lingering in the back of your mind. Use the little bit of extra energy that suddenly appears on Friday to tie up loose ends. Now you can enjoy your weekend with a clear conscious.
Prepare. Do you get that Monday morning feeling? A good way to combat that dreaded feeling is to plan and prepare for Monday on Friday! You will arrive at work on Monday motivated because you know exactly what to do and what to expect.
