How To Make This Week More Meaningful

Life is meant to be enjoyed. Every moment of every day of every week can have purpose. Sometimes, we get so caught up wishing for some event in the future that we fail to appreciate the moments in the interim.

If you’re one of those people who spend the days from Monday to Friday just dreaming about the weekend, here are a few things you can do to make the week more meaningful.

1. Be grateful. Start by acknowledging and appreciating what you already have, where you are, what you’ve been through, the lessons you’ve learned, the person you are, the people around you and the time that you have. Start with an attitude of gratitude before you start expecting more.

2. Set a goal. What’s one thing you could accomplish this week? You probably can’t become fluent in a foreign language but you could certainly learn how to introduce yourself in German in a week (the fact that the Germans won the World Cup just made Germany a very popular country). You can’t train for a marathon in a week but you could train to run a mile and shave 1 minute per mile off your pace. You can’t become a gourmet chef in a week, but you could probably perfect a recipe if you worked at it for 5 days.

3. Make a plan. Develop a strategy to make your goal attainable. Make a list of the resources you can use to achieve your goal. Write down the names of the people you think can give you advice or tips on reaching your goal. What websites you can go to for information? Which videos could you watch?

4. Work your plan every day. Small chunks every day will make each day a little easier.

5. Celebrate. At the end of the week, celebrate your accomplishment and share your story to motivate yourself and someone else.  Then, start thinking about the next big thing you can accomplish.
