Here we are, its Monday and once again the to do list I had for the weekend didn’t get completed.
It wasn’t as if I didn’t work over the weekend, of course I did. But that to do list is still there and is still almost full. Why? Well because every weekend I go into it thinking how much I’m going to get done. For whatever reason in my mind I think the weekend will have endless time that I’ll never be able to fill. Sadly it’s only 48 hours and during some of that I do have to sleep… no matter how much I try not to.
Still, the idea of being able to accomplish a lot over the weekend seems like it could happen. You don’t have all these emails coming in or clients calling you. Even if clients do call and email you can wait and answer them back on Monday. After all, it’s the weekend and people don’t really expect you to get back to them as quickly as you would during the week.
Typically I start the weekend with big goals of getting so much done, anything that I wasn’t able to wrap up during the week and then maybe some other fun project I’d like to work on. Maybe some drawing, reading, or blogging because I also have to find some time to relax. It is the weekend and you need a break no matter how small of a break; you have to recharge somewhat.
What always happens is Sunday rolls around and I feel way behind, I end up stressing out over what I didn’t get done. Some of it I needed to get done and some of it didn’t matter.
What it really comes down to is time management, or my lack of it on the weekend. Or maybe I should just be enjoying the weekend and not trying to cram it full of work because that’s what I do during the week. Ha, right! Of course, I’ve already started adding things to my to do list for this weekend. Cause ya know, I’ve got 48 hours to fill.
