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.

A bloated pamphlet
- Jami E. Nettles
Decent message, slow narrator.
I like the idea the book portrays about in order to have a good relaxing weekend you need to have "anchors," certain activities that give your weekend character and shape. You also need to plan rest and relaxation into your weekend. Overall message was good and I took some nuggets away from this book.
This book had the worst narrator I've ever heard. I had to speed it up to 1.5x the regular speed and even still the way she read commas and periods was so annoying and unnatural.
slow. so slow. so so slow
