I've always had a love-hate relationship with Sundays. While it's still the weekend and I want to make the most out of Sunday Funday, I'm also anxious about going back to the grind. Sometimes, I even straight-up dread Mondays.
Sundays are a great day to get your errands out of the way, like grocery shopping. Also, take time for cooking meals, cleaning rooms, or dropping things off at different shops. You most likely don't have the time and energy to do these activities after work.
But don’t spend all of Sunday on these tasks. Even though they’re important, you still need some time to decompress.
About four years ago I started working for myself. I wanted the freedom and flexibility to own my schedule and the space to bring my ideas to life. One of the biggest challenges was structuring my time so I was fully experiencing the benefits of working for myself while also being as creative and productive as possible.
Leaders often rise to leadership because they're great talkers. Now it's in the way. You can't connect, communicate or influence without listening. Bad bosses talk. Successful leaders listen. Stop talking about listening. Ouch: I still remember the day I asked my wife if I was a good listener.
