7 questions to ask yourself at the end of the week

At least, you need to leave time for yourself at the end of each week. This is your personal time-out, during which you can introspect and ask yourself questions such as those we have listed below.
1. What a pleasant surprise was waiting for me this week?

Analyze whole week from beginning to end. It was a week imitation flurry of activity? It had been a busy and productive week? Relax and admit your successes and failures, especially if this week had problems. If you lost a job or haven’t found a solution to a problem, it just means that next week you are waiting for a breakthrough. What you learn leads you right to him.

What do you do? Something… something small… until you just reach the goal. If you make a mistake, try again. I’ll try something else. If you wait until all uncertainty disappears out of your head, one day you may find that the moment’s passed.
You become stronger, more confident you grow emotionally, being in circumstances that force you to look fear in the face. At this point you realize that you’re still alive, that it is not deadly.
