03 Mar A case of the Mondays
We all love to hate Mondays. But in your devotion to scorning the first day of the work week, are you perhaps missing an opportunity to do great things?
Dan Zadra thinks so. Author of the motivational “The 5 Book: Where Will You be Five Years from Today?,” Zadra advocates for changing your mind about Mondays.
Instead of considering them the dreadful start to a questionable week, what if you thought of every Monday as an opportunity to do something exciting and innovative?
For instance, what if you sign up for a new exercise class on Mondays? Use your commute to listen to a self-help podcast? Or spend 15 minutes of every Monday going for a brisk walk to dream up new ideas and solutions to work problems that have been nagging you?
In five years, Zadra argues, you’ll have 260 Mondays to take advantage of. Think of what you can do with 260 opportunities for greatness!
In my 20 years in this business, I’ve met few people who claim to love Mondays. But if you have a case of the Mondays, don’t let it get the best of you.
