Any real content creator on the grind knows that there really is no difference between a weekday and a weekend. It’s a job where you have to work at least 6 days a week, have to update yourself daily, and no excuses from running off from work. Well, that was just my story but trust me, if you’re loving the process, nothing is going to stop you from reaching your set goal.
Every day matters, and it’s up to you how you choose to make it productive and how seriously you’re actually taking your venture. It’s not easy to say NO to your Saturday festivities and force yourself to keep on making moves.
It’s not like I don’t enjoy or hang out on weekends, but the ones who know me well, do know me as a person who is going to complete his work first, irrespective of the time it is going to take and then move forward for the next activity. You know that’s how things should roll. Agree?
Writing this blog was more about observing my own behaviour towards weekends and other’s as well and trust me, this ended up being funny in most cases. Let me share some of the ways I have learned to make my Saturday grind added with more fun. Here I go!
- REWARD YOURSELF –
I’m a person who believes so much in preparing notes and reminders for almost every activity. I don’t know writing has always helped me in every possible way it can. You and only you know what all activities do you carry in a week so accordingly, prepare your TO-DO LIST! To-do list is actually fun if maintained properly. Make a schedule of how are you going to work this whole week.
Set a proper goal for a week and divide them into some few subgoals. At the end of the week, review your performance and accordingly, celebrate every new project you fulfil on time or before time. That’s how working should be processed.
- TURN ON A SILENT MOVIE –
Turning on a silent movie can be a great kick as it can provide you with an escape for a little bit of time. This is something that made me feel less alone as a teenager – and is a tactic I still use today. If you’re a person who loves listening to music, go for some slow songs at a low voice. It’s important to take some time off from these busy schedules and just relax for a while. Play with your younger siblings or just go out for a walk. All these measures have actually helped me in processing my day to day activities. What really matters is that you actually get work done anyway.
- WORK ALONGSIDE A FRIEND –
This can be difficult as it requires the right type of friendship but if you have this sort of a person in your life, do this as often as possible. Find someone you can work alongside effectively and productively. The goal here is to work with someone who shares similar goals as you, or even someone you’re collaborating on a project with so that you can get the work done, together.
- MAKE IT A CREATIVE DAY –
Something I have written about a lot and so do tell people is how you should keep moving forward and stretch your muscles a bit to get your work done. If you still want to feel somewhat productive but just can’t get into your flow, make it a creative day. Draw, play the guitar, watch a movie with your family. Do something which can spark your creativity back again and get you thinking in a right direction.
- DO ALL OF THE ABOVE –
I’ll be honest here – I have a habit of rewarding myself every week, whether it be clothes (most of the times since I so love fashion), eat my favourite food, watch my all time favourite movies and de-stress myself from all the tough days I had been through previously.
Just because everybody is going out on a Saturday night, doesn’t mean even you have to. If you would rather work on something that means a lot to you, then I’ll suggest trying all of the above measures and add some fun to your grind.
