A piece that speaks about productivity and motivates you to keep going forth in life in spite of storms, hurdles and tussles.

Dearest, it is another Sunday and tomorrow begins the ‘new’ week. Guess what? Weekends are usually meant for one to rest and resume back to work whenever Mondays come knocking but, the meat of the matter is that, one can still be as productive as possible on weekends, too.

That mail you’ve drafted last week, have you sent it?

The PowerPoint presentation you want to make next week, have you rehearsed it?

What about that application form you had wanted to fill some days ago?

Have you written your ideas on paper to help you trace, track or self-evaluate your progress?

Perhaps you have not yet gone through your to-do list for this month/year, since the day you wrote it.

What is more enjoyable than having to properly prepare ahead of your journey into the world of opportunities and challenges?

We still have scores of questions unanswered.

No matter what, START.

Send that COLD MAIL if that’s what is going to make a great difference in your life and career.

Don't hold back, GO.

That form, FILL IT.

This task, COMPLETE IT.

That website, BUILD IT.

These things, MOVE THEM.

That project, EXECUTE IT.

The ladder of success, WALK ON IT.

This book kept in the secrecy of your subconscious mind, WRITE IT.

The story the world awaits to hear, TELL IT.

To make sense of your weekend and make it simply colorful, you could drink from the well of these selected words of wisdom:

1. ‘It’s okay if every weekend doesn’t lead to big moments and campfires and laughter that carries on for hours and hours. Some weekends might be quiet, still, with plenty of room to contemplate. And in that contemplation room, there is room to grow.’ (Morgan Nichols)

2. ‘There are millions of stars in the sky and just remember that you are a star among them all.’ (Theodore Higginsworth)

3. ‘When you reach an obstacle, turn it into an opportunity. You have the choice. You can overcome and be a winner, or you can allow it to overcome you and be a loser.’ (Mary Kay Ash)

Finally, I wish you all reading this piece a fun-filled and productive week ahead and remember to check in here once in a while as I shall be keeping you updated with inciting, intriguing, and inspiring contents that move you into action, growth, and anything in-between.
