5 Simple Things You Should Do Every Sunday Night to Prepare for the Week Ahead

The future belongs to those who prepare for it today. – Malcolm X

This is a simple article by Inc on how to prepare for the week, by starting on Sunday night.

To have success, one needs to plan. And planning starts  early, on a Sunday night.

How much you gain from life is based on how much you put into it.



A Harvard psychologist reveals the biggest reason people don’t achieve their goals

My ambition comes from my passion; finding what I love and then expanding on that. Miranda Kerr

Reading the post with the same title on Business Insider set me thinking.

Amy Cuddy cautioned of setting goals purely on the outcome only, without considering the process.

And my thoughts on it?

A goal, too big and too audacious, deters one from taking the first step.

A goal has to be challenging enough, but not too unrealistic.

If they face obstacles along the way, which inevitably will, they are not equipped to overcome it.

One must visualize to have success. But to visualize, he has to visualize on both having successfully achieve his goals, and also on how he overcome the struggles along the way.

Create milestones along the way, and achieve it. They serve as feedback, if you are on track on meeting your goals.

Your success in life depends much on how you really set your goals. Do it wisely. Plan it carefully.



Time Time Time

Lost time is never found again. – Benjamin Franklin

There’s just not enough time in the world.

There’s work to do. Projects, projects, projects. Last minute assignments.

There’s family commitment – to our parents, spouses, kids.

There’s homework and more homework to do. There’s tuition classes to attend. There’s curricular activities in the evening.

There’s dinner with friends. There’s clubbing with the gals. There’s the drinking with the guys.

If only there were 25 hours a day. No, if only there were 48 hours a day.

This calls for time management tips!

One misconception for time management is to do more in less time.

The truth is on doing less within the available time.

What? Doing less?!?!?

Yes, doing less. It’s about you saying “NO” to activities that are not aligned to your goals. Prioritize!

It’s not about the quantity. It’s about the quality of the time spent.

You need to know what are your life goals – what is it that is truly important to you, to your family, to your work.

You need to know what truly add values to your goals.

Anything, and everything, that conflicts with your goals deserve a big “NO” in the request.

Make plans of what you do. Plan your schedules in making the most of your time achieving the things that bring you closer to your dreams.

Learn to do your tasks more efficiently. Cut down the time needed with new knowledge. There is always education – in learning new skills or in seeing your situations differently.

How well do you cope with your time? What is your main method in being more efficient with your time?
