4. Make time for family and friends
This is especially important for those who don’t spend much time with their loved ones during the week.
Everyone needs to do it, and if you can’t work out 4 to 5 days during the workweek, you need to be active on weekends to make up for some of that time. It’s the perfect opportunity to clear your mind and create fresh ideas.
6. Pursue a passion
Successful people make time for what is important or fun, They make space for activities that add to their life balance.
The most successful people avoid e-mail/communication for a period of time. Not the whole weekend, but even just a walk without the phone can feel liberating. If you don’t have a specific religious obligation of no-work time, taking Saturday night to mid-day Sunday off is a nice, ecumenical time that works for many people.
Planning makes people more effective, and doing it before the week starts means you can hit Monday ready to go, and means you’ll give clear directions to the people who work for you, so they will be ready to go, too
9. Write something
There can't be any better way to clear your thoughts than to pen it down. Writing helps you to think beyond your capacity and thing wholly.
If you cant write about what you do, its mostly likely that, you dont know clearly what you do.
