Here are three ways you can energize your Monday:
- Develop your ‘must-do’ list for the week on Sunday night. Hey, it’s football season. Great coaches usually script the first 13 – 20 plays. They then see how the game is progressing and adjust accordingly. What if you went into the work week with 8-10 things you must accomplish and then go with the flow after that. You will be focused and will accomplish what’s important and not just what’s necessary.
- Get your high fives going! Welcome your co-workers back for another exciting week. Remember, many associates come back to work tired from the weekend (ironic, isn’t it). Give them energy, make it a little quirky and fun.
- Gratitude is attitude. If you’re a leader, ask people to gather around and share what they are grateful for right now. This positive conversation fuels people to be in a good place to begin their week.
It’s hump day now, but I’m almost done with my ‘must-do’ list that needed to get accomplished this week. Can’t wait for Monday!
