This past week I felt like I was pretty productive with tasks outside of training, whether it was setting up some emails, designing programs, creating graphics, etc. Now this lasted for about 3 full days then all of a sudden, the brick wall hit me!
I felt sluggish, tired, motivated but just couldn’t focus to get work done. My mind was racing and thinking of just about everything that needed to get done or what was next on the to-do list.
I took a few minutes Friday to figure out what went well and what didn’t go well. Why did I hit the wall all of a sudden?
I focused on the earlier portion of the week, what happened during the week? We had a snow/ice day that took away a few hours of training, I spent a lot of hours working on several projects, but I was efficient with my time management on these projects and tasks.
What happened mid-week? I eventually figured out it stemmed from when I stayed up way too late to watch a documentary on Netflix and only accumulated about 5 hours of sleep heading into one of my busiest days. This deficit decreased everything that was going well earlier this week. It decreased production, energy levels, efficiency, ultimately costing me three days of efficiently working towards my goals.
My point of this post is that everything you do during the day and night accumulates over the course of the week and can impact you positively and negatively. This includes everything from sleep, attitude, nutrition, working out, time, etc.
So, what are three things that you can focus and improve on this upcoming week to make this your best week?
For me, it will be
I’d love to hear what your three focal points for this week are, so reply back to this with “3 Improvements”.
Have a great week!
