What the Most Successful People Do on the Weekend

A Short Guide to Making the Most of Your Days Off (A Penguin Special from Portfo lio)

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Many of us breathe a grateful TGIF when Friday rolls around, envisioning a weekend full of both productivity and refreshment. Yet too often our precious weekends seem to disappear, eaten up by unproductive work or leisure that fails to energize us. Monday morning comes too fast, finding us still unrested, with too much still undone.

Time management expert Laura Vanderkam, continuing her series on What the Most Successful People Do, shows how we can take control of our weekends to get necessary R&R, while also using our downtime as a springboard to a productive week.
Drawing on real-life anecdotes and scientific research, Vanderkam explains why doing nothing can be more exhausting than doing something and why happy people make weekend plans in advance. She shares weekend tips gleaned from busy people such as politician and talk show host Mike Huckabee, former CEO Frank Baxter, and TV producer Aliza Rosen. She reveals the kind of weekend activities that make people happiest, explains why it’s important to unplug at least for a little while, and shares the secret of why Sunday night may be the most important part of any weekend.  

What the Most Successful People Do On the Weekend  is a fun, practical guide that will inspire you to rethink your weekends and start your workweek refreshed, renewed, and on track.

Customer Reviews


I feel like I've heard this before. I thought the author was going to interview more successful people; I found that this book contained a lot of fluff.
