Do you, like me, you find yourself in a weekend "rut"; doing the same things every weekend? Are you mostly in your pyjamas and often not leaving the house? Then Laura Vanderkam's e-bookette (mini e-book?) is just the thing to jolt you out of your cosy routine.
These were my three favourite takeaways from the book....
There is nothing like cold, hard numbers to make you realise what you are wasting. A whole working week? I would never have guessed that.
Ooof. As a mother, this one hit me hard. I only have 1,000 Saturdays with the light of my life. Quick! We need to do stuff. We need to be making memories.
I am tired. I am a mother, a wife, a business owner, a daughter, a friend, a curiosity seeker. Frankly, I'm exhausted. But Vanderkam is absolutely correct in order to replenish your depleted energy you must draw it from meaningful things. It takes very little to do so. After all, how much better do you feel when you know you have achieved something, even if it is just one thing rather than being asked on Monday "What did you do this weekend?" and answering "I have absolutely no idea."?
What the Most Successful People do on the Weekend by Laura Vanderkam is available as an e-book from your preferred online retailer.
