How to Start Your Week Like It’s Tuesday

Career Advice

garfieldWhy Tuesday? Because Tuesday is the most productive day of the week, according to a recent survey by staffing company Accountemps. If you feel like Garfield every Monday morning, it might be time to adjust your plan of attack. Here a few strategies from a recent FastCompany article that will help you make Monday as productive as Tuesdays.

1. Forgo Monday morning meetings.
People are generally more productive in the mornings and a first-thing meeting at the beginning of the week squashes that potential.

2. Don’t slack off on Fridays.
Monday shouldn’t be a catch-up day. View it as a jump start day. That means you’ll have to stick to your deadlines and goals for the end of each week.

3. Plan your week — before Monday.
Before you leave on Friday afternoon, take a look at your workload and map out how your next week will run. Delegate tasks for each day of the week and you’ll be able to take to the ground running when you walk in the door Monday at 8 AM. Really, it can happen!
