Wrap up your Work Week


It's so hard not to look at your work "stuff" over the weekend, when it's your "time off," right? Here are a few tips to help you wrap up your week so that you don't have to work until Monday morning:

    • Reply to all your important emails. At this point, I am going to assume you've cleaned up your inbox and have prioritized the important emails correctly. If you haven't already, be sure to check out our blog Overloaded with your Emails?

    • Make sure all your work calls, meetings, or appointments are not on the weekend, unless there is an emergency. Plan your weekend without any work. I think you owe your family, and friends an entire weekend without having to check your work email!

    • Friday evening should be the last time to check for any email, or updates for work. Since it's Friday, plan on ending your work by 3:30, and go out for happy hour with your colleagues!

    • A great way to end the work week is to start making a to-do list for Monday. Plan your Friday afternoon to ensure that all tasks can be moved over to Monday, so there is no unfinished business before the weekend starts.

Be happy it's Friday! Cheers to the weekend. :)
