I like to start my week on a clean slate. While I prefer not to be working during the weekends, and clear my weekly to-do list by Friday, if I still have any work that can’t move to the next week, I prefer to work on Saturday mornings.
Having a clean to-do list helps me focus on the tasks due in the upcoming weeks. Whenever I haven’t completed my to-do, either they are lost in the pile of new work, or if that work is must do, the new weeks’ tasks get hampered. Such situations impact my efficiency and productivity. Hence, I try and finish my weekly to-do even if I have to work on the weekends.
The above is true for my situation and how I work. You might have a different way figured out. How do you stay focused at the start of the new week?
