I suppose I am a like a lot of other managers that use time during the weekends to catch up on emails, finish projects or either plan or make adjustments to my schedule for the coming week. I usually use 2-3 hours either on Saturday or Sunday mornings before the family wakes up.
I am curious to know if other managers do the same and if so what they specifically work on to either help to get ahead or to get caught up. I have been putting a lot of focus on my schedule in the hopes that instead of the time spent on work during the weekends I am using that time for personal development.
I am not looking for a sliver bullet but some suggestions to get me in the right path to be more effective with my time during the week so I can avoid the hours spent during the weekends. Sometimes I think that it maybe an unrealistic dream of being able to avoid work during the weekends, but if I can drop it to one hour from three I'd be happy.
