Dr. Boyce Watkins Teaches Us About Working On The Weekends

As I sit here working this weekend I received an email from Dr. Boyce Watkins about working over the weekend. I thought it to be very clear and a lot of wisdom in it so I decided to copy it in its entirety and share it with you.

I did not ask him if he would mind but I believe that he would not be offended since it is an open email to his subscribers.

You are are seeking to “Master Yourself” you have to be willing to make those sacrifices. Too many people believe that when you are self-employed or a business owner you don’t have any free time. But that’s not the case at all. As a business owner, you learn to manage your time better and become more productive with your time.


We had our grandchildren over today and my son came and got them early this evening. My daughter and my wife and winding down looking at TV right now and NOW is my time to get some things done. After that, I’ll join them and look at some TV.  I played, I am working and then I’ll relax.

Anyway here is Dr. Watkins email about working over the weekend.


Hello, I hope you’re doing well.

Someone mentioned to me that they were a business owner, but they don’t work on the weekends. I mentioned to him that when you don’t work on the weekends, you’re giving your competitors a 28.57% advantage (since the weekend is a little more than one-fourth of your free time).

The goal is not to advocate for the idea of working non-stop, it’s to shift our thinking when it comes to achieving our goals and integrating economic survival into our day-to-day life. It was the corporation that taught you to work Monday through Friday and see the weekends as your only time off.

Economic freedom is a way of life, similar to raising a family. You have the freedom to stop working whenever you want, but by being consistent, you’re able to ensure that your business grows in a way that it provides long-term security.
