Your weekend might be the most important time of the week. It’s not only the end of one week, but also the beginning, the setup, for the next.
If used correctly, it can be a great way to wrap up a successful week or to recover from a difficult one. If used correctly, it can be a great springboard for an awesome week ahead.
If used incorrectly, it can end a great week on a sour note and set up an even worse week ahead. All because you make one or more of the five mistakes I share below.
5 mistakes most people make on the weekends
1. Not reflecting on the week that was.

If you are anything like me, you have to be reminded of this every 6-8 minutes.
I vacillate between wanting to change the world and wanting to be independently wealthy by the end of next Tuesday. It’s often a confusing place to be.
The thing that I finally realized as I pondered this quote for some time was that the word “rich” might have nothing to do with money. Oh, if you make a difference in a commercial way (Apple, Google, and Dave Ramsey come to mind), you will be rewarded financially.
But I also have to remember daily how rich I am when I come home to a smiling and running toddler yelling my name. Or when it seems my world is crashing around me and I have a wife who is right there with me. Or when I break the heart of the One who created me only to remember that He redeemed me nearly 2000 years ago.
When you serve your family, you are making a difference. When you honor your marriage or a business contract, you are making a difference. And when you receive grace, refuse to wallow in self-pity, and go out and show others how to do the same, you are making a difference.
