Every Friday afternoon, I try to think through what I’m doing during the next week. It makes me feel more prepared, which helps me enjoy the weekend more. And since it’s a long weekend, that’s extra important!
I’m working on a few pieces for Fast Company that I’d love ideas for (examples, sources, etc.).
How to make fewer decisions. Decision fatigue is real. President Obama famously limits his choices of suits so he can preserve his decision making power. What do you do? Eat the same thing for breakfast? Always choose the chicken salad for lunch at restaurants?
Get promoted working 40 hours/week. While working long hours is one way to stand out, it’s probably not the only way. Strategies for boosting your career without piling on the hours.
Productivity/business books that could be beach reads. So yeah, there aren’t any murders or sex scenes. You also probably go to the beach to get away from work. But which productivity (or business) books are readable enough to deserve a place in your beach bag? I have a few ideas but I’d love others!
We’ve got swim lessons this weekend, and we’ll be hitting a festival at a Maryland winery, and some fireworks. Other than that, I hope to get 2 runs in, and some reading. We might go strawberry picking. And I hope to think through my summer bucket list — the things that I’d love to do that make the season feel like a good one. How about you?
