End your week on a positive note every Friday with these three work habits—and set the tone for the following week:
1. Choose one person who made your week go more smoothly and send him a quick thank-you note. It’s a small time commitment—maybe 10 minutes. But the results are powerful.

2. Make note of your three greatest accomplishments over the past week and embrace the positive emotion associated with getting important things done. Did anyone help you in tackling them? Consider making her the recipient of your thank-you note.
3. What are your top three goals for next week? Do you have time set aside for them? Whom do you need help from? What’s the next step associated with each goal? Write down each task and attach a due date.
