Make-it-Happen Mondays

Career Advice

What’s your Monday style? If you’re like many people who get the Sunday Scaries and dread getting back to the grind, you may start your workweek off slow. Perhaps you ease into your morning, examine your to-do list with a hot cup of coffee, and begrudgingly plan how you’re going to tackle the next few days. But what if you hit the ground running every Monday over and over and over again?

It may be a tough pill to swallow, but super-productive Mondays can make a huge difference in your work week. You won’t have to spend the end of the week playing catch up. You’ll get a step ahead on your deadlines, perhaps even meeting them early. You may even boost your mood and confidence in a way that flows into Tuesday and beyond.

You’ll also get into the good habit of dedicating the last hour on Friday (or Sunday night) to scheduling your following week in the most productive way. If you’re looking for more motivation as to why this needs to happen, think of it this way: if your Monday is already mapped out, you won’t even have to think that hard. You’ll just see a to-do list in front of you and start tackling it, no planning, debating, or prioritizing required. In a way, it takes less brain power!
