Mondays – Are They Awful or Awesome?


Monday, Monday, can´t trust that day

Monday, Monday, sometimes it just turns out that way

(Mamas and The Papas)

When I was younger, I thought (no, I knew) that Monday was the most awful day of the week!

Good things NEVER happened on Mondays!

Why did I believe that?

Because when I walked into the office on Monday morning, my co-workers were already talking about their weekends and how they HATE Mondays!  There are thousands of cartoons about how awful that day of the week is.  Oh, and just check out Facebook — supposedly problems only happen on Mondays!

Here’s the thing — it doesn’t have to be that way!  Changing the attitude about Mondays will also change the direction of your success for the rest of the week.

Here are a couple of suggestions:

  1. On Sunday evening, review your calendar and visualize how you are going to spend your Monday.  What appointments do you have set up?  A meeting with a real estate agent?  A company meeting?  Review of your files scheduled to close?  Date night?  Time with family?
  2. On Sunday, also review your calendar for the coming week and make a list of things you need to do — marketing, setting up appointments, reading guidelines.
  3. Reflect back on your accomplishments from the week before – What did you accomplish last week where you picked your arm up over your head and patted yourself on the back?  What didn’t you accomplish that you can add to this week’s calendar?

So, are Mondays awful or are they awesome for you?
