On monday morning the most frequently asked question is, “how was your weekend”. Too many times I have answered, “weeks end?” There are times when I can’t determine the beginning of the week from the end of the week because my projects last 10, 30 and even 45 days. When that happens I don’t get to do much more than work but when you enjoy your work it goes unnoticed.
Whether you are a work-a-holic or a lazy bum you want to have a good answer for that question. Having a good weekend can make it easier to go back to work on Monday. It can make your life a little happier and the people around you more tolerable. If you haven’t been having the best weekends I am going to give you a few ways to make sure you can be the envy of the office with your Presidential weekend.
First step you have to decide who you’re going to play with. Having the right people involved will make your experience better. When you are making this decision give some thought to what activities you have running through your mind and pick someone who can hang. If you are thinking lots of flirting and moving around, do not pick someone who is slow and insecure. If you are thinking educational and cultural, do not pick someone shallow.
Now that you got the person or people in mind the second thing you have to do is decide whether you are going to be spontaneous or if you are going to plan out the schedule. Either way you can have a ton of fun. Sometimes when you don’t plan your every move you run into some interesting characters and happenings. However, if there is a lot to do in a little time having a plan can help you get through them all. (Don’t put too much pressure on yourself though.)
The third thing you want to do is do some research. You can always consult your Lifestyle Consultant, Kiné Corder if you need ideas. Today, I will give you a few of my resources and let you know what I do when I am planning a weekend for clients. When I am researching what’s happening I like to use Urban Daddy if it is short notice. They have interesting new restaurant openings, special events, art shows and even sales. Metro Mix is also a good place if you want to see if there is excitement in your area. I subscribe to Living Social and even if the deal isn’t right for me at the time I may buy it for a future client. There are always innovative businesses advertising everything from Hot Yoga to dinner for two.
There are a few other websites and resources I use. However, they are Presidential Lifestyle’s secret weapons so I can’t share them. I bet you if you get started with these you will enjoy your life a little more. When you are ready to take it to the next level and really start to tackle your BUCK LIST I will give you the key to the vault.
The fourth step to creating your Presidential weekend is to just do it. Don’t think about it too much. Get out there and do something new, fun, exciting, adventurous, different, playful or whatever makes you feel you are on top of the world.
The fifth and final step is to talk about it. Tell anybody who will listen. Talk about it for weeks and weeks. Add it to the collection of Presidential stories you are building. And while you are telling the stories feel every emotion all over again. I am so serious. So now the answer to the most frequently asked Monday morning question, “how was your weekend” is….Presidential! (don’t forget to smile while your saying it.)
