When the weekend rolls around, professionals around the world chorus, “thank God it’s Friday!”, some eager to temporarily leave behind jobs they hate (only to sink into despair when Monday draws near), and others ready to party the weekend away.
Ignited people, however, love Fridays for one powerful reason: SUCCESS LEAVES CLUES. If you’re truly focused on the vision you have for your business and your career, you have to continually keep an eye on that vision and make sure you’re on track. There are always clues as to whether you’re moving forward, or going round in circles.
Friday is a great day to reflect on your week’s work. Here are a few questions to help you get started:
How was your week, really? Was it outstanding or just marginal?
- Did you make any progress with your goals?
- Did you render good service?
- Did you give more than was required of you or did you give just enough to get by?
Sadly, less than 3% of those who worked this week can truly answer positively to these questions.
Ignited people love Fridays because it gives them an opportunity to celebrate their effort irrespective of outcomes; because they know it’s only a matter of time before the results and fruit show up! Don’t lose sight of vision! Forge ahead!
Success does leave clues, and they’re there so you can build on them. Spend time thinking back on the week gone by, and take note of what you can do even better next week. That way, you can enjoy your weekend and be raring to go when Monday comes.
Have a fabulous weekend, and stay ignited!
