Believe it or not, you made it to Friday afternoon!
I know, there were times this week that you didn't think that was possible!
Now you are probably thinking two things.
Thank God it's the weekend
If I went to the quiet office this weekend, what could I get done?
Acknowledge what you did
Before you go there (planning your weekend), I want you to first acknowledge what you'd been through this week, what you have accomplished and where you've grown.
Before you start numbing...
Often times we are so focused on numbing out work by the end of the day or week that we miss noticing some of the positives, the accomplishments and the good things that happened.
Scan the past week
Notice the things that happened that you may have missed noticing before. Those things that got crammed in between the crappy phone call and the emergency meeting.
What stands out this week? Did you get a good chunk of work done on a project? Did you complete some necessary training? Perhaps you made it through a time sheet nightmare. Take time to notices some of the things that make you smile.
Go easy on yourself
You've done what you could this week.
You've done enough!
No regrets. We are only human!
Focus on what you accomplished!
Whether you do some extra work this week or not, be proud of what you've done this week and don't beat yourself up for not having done enough. There will always be work to do, long after you and the next person are gone. Don't focus on that. Focus, even if just for a moment on the work you did!
I lead a full life full of love, adventure and growth. Check out my latest thoughts here.
