Enjoy, but don’t forget about the time for summing up.
We all know about what is useful and good, what we need to do in order to be successful. We study time management and learning how to prioritize the work week. But what about the weekend? In the words of Aristotle: “We are the result of their habits, and excellence is not an act but a habit.” We have compiled for you a list of 11 habits of highly successful people:
Robert iger: Early rise
Chief Executive officer of the company “Disney” is not the only successful person whose day starts at 4:30 every morning. Successful people are not lying in bed until two in the afternoon on Sunday. And even up to 11. Studies have shown that the human brain is most productive from 2.5 to 4 hours after you woke up, informs Rus.Media.
So, try to Wake up early on my day off, and you’ll have a serious advantage over the rest of the world.
Benjamin Franklin: Plan
Apparently, the founding father every morning and asked myself: “What good can I do today?”. Don’t need to be President to know about the importance of planning and its impact on your life. Successful people know the importance of every day to set goals and the weekend is no exception.
Timothy Ferris: “No” multi-tasking
Multitasking is a hit of the 2000’s. But that time has passed. Perhaps it looks tempting to increase your productivity this weekend. For example, to go for a run, in parallel, talking to mom on the phone, and at the same time making a playlist on your mp3. But successful people know that it only reduces efficiency and effectiveness. Try to be concentrated on one task. Ferriss recommends to set themselves a maximum of two jobs a day to achieve results.
Anna Wintour: Be active
Editor in chief of Vogue plays tennis one hour daily. And she’s not the only one who takes the time to physical exercise. Richard Branson stays active with surfing, and one of the richest men in India has been participating in marathons. Successful people know how important it is to be active physically and then mentally.
Steve jobs: prioritize
Some things should never change the world so that you can be important.
The weekend is a time to remind ourselves of the small but important things to restore the harmony of life. To spend time with dear friends, to play with children or walk with their parents. Perhaps all this will make you more efficient, but it is no less important. Even the President does not forget about family dinners with my family.
Warren Buffett: Hobby
The most successful investor of the 20th century at the weekend likes to play the ukulele. As a rule, successful people is unusual, and their Hobbies are also not standard. Of course, the game of Golf on Saturday can help to establish the necessary contacts and to successfully impact the business. But if you’re liking one, like Meryl Streep – knitting, or as George Bush – oil painting – why not? A hobby increase our creativity and reduce stress.
Oprah Winfrey: the Practice of tranquility
All famous and successful people are meditating 20 minutes a day, and some do twice a day. This last secret of the yogis is now known to many. In the corporate world well-known effect of meditation is purification of consciousness, reducing stress, improving health and creativity.
Sometimes weekends are more busy than weekdays. After all, you only have 48 hours and have to catch a lot to do, shopping, family obligations and gatherings with friends. Most successful people insist on silence, including at the weekend.
Randi Zuckerberg: Enjoy
We’ve all done it – marked positions in a social network about where we spend your day off. And waited for the approving of comments and likes, look forward to browsing through the news feed of what others are doing? Welcome to the era of SPV (fear of missing important).
Executive Director, sister of Mark Zuckerberg, offers to use the formula SPNV (a miss does not matter). Just keep telling yourself “I don’t need to be anywhere except this place, where I already have”.
Bill gates: Time to summarize
The founder of Microsoft once said: “it’s Good to celebrate success but it is equally important to take a lesson from their failures.” Summing up – a mandatory part of the day a successful person. And the weekend is a great time to step back and reflect on their actions and adjust future plans.
Richard Branson: Give
Strange how the concentration on health issues, terrorism, and climate in the world gives you a new perspective on other areas of your life.
Successful people often use the phrase of Anne Frank: “no One becomes poor by giving”. Tom Corley-for five years studied the behavior of rich people and found that every rich and successful person is engaged in volunteering at least five hours per month. Nothing relieves stress better than helping those who are perhaps a little less fortunate. And the weekend is a great opportunity to give this time.

It is impossible to go astray. You can’t sleep. One eye should always be open.” He would not became the owner of 520 million, achieving success 5 days out of 7.
