Apply these 10 things this weekend, if you think you fail often

Whether you are in a government job or a private corporate one, we begin expecting the weekend to come sooner as soon as the second-third day of the week is over. You work hard most of the times for the week to get over and weekend to come faster. But the experts of how you perform in your life say actually Saturday and Sunday decide how well you are going to spend your workweek. The way you plan your weekend, says a lot about how successful you are.

No, it is not some serious stuff like joining motivational classes, or attending workshops to hone your skills, but how you plan your fun over the weekend. So it doesn’t really matter what exactly are you up to the weekend, but how you plan and do it fully to unwind yourself completely. So the whole idea of PSU Watch here is to make you realize how mindful you are about what you are doing. Because that is what going to separate you from what you are and what you want to be. The first of the ten things that you might be doing over the weekend that is leading you to lose yourself slowly is lack of planning.
