Well it’s official – Mondays barely make the cut as productive days. In a recent survey conducted by staffing firm Accountemps, 57% of executives said Tuesday was the most productive day of the week. Only 12% ranked Monday as the most productive. Of course Friday tailed off with a 3% ranking.
When I chose the title No More Mondays I wasn’t trying to erase Mondays – only the negative stigma we’ve allowed to build around that day. I want you to love Mondays as much as Fridays. Oh yeah – that’s what having fulfilling work can do. If the thought of Monday still makes your blood pressure rise or stomach turn – keep looking and planning. Don’t settle for less than meaningful work.
2nd century disciple St. Irenaeus said “The Glory of God is Man Fully Alive.” If the 40-50 hours a week you spend in your work is a boring and unfulfilling time, you are not “fully alive.”
