Do you work weekends too?
When I send an email or tweet to someone on a Friday evening, it’s always interesting to watch who responds before the weekend is over. Those are the 8pm Warriors.
They are usually the most successful people I know.
The interesting thing about their success is that it has nothing to do with actually working on the weekend, but rather why they’re working on the weekend.
Why do you do it?
Most people don’t work weekends because they like to enjoy a break from work. They want some time to do what they love and spend time with people they love. Me time.
I totally understand that.
However, when people do work they love and work with people they care about, every day is like the weekend. Their work is joyful and exciting and meaningful.
That is why they’re successful. Not because they need to work weekends, but because they want to. That is the key to success.
You must love what you do to be successful.
If you don’t love what you do Monday through Friday, get a new job or create one.
Live inspired. Follow your passion. Work weekends.
Have a great weekend,
