Pretty much everyone has, at some point, had “a case of the Mondays” (which is a phrase used to describe someone that has a bad mood when he or she comes into the office on Monday). Try out these time management tips and turn Monday into your favorite day of the week.
Overwhelm in the office (virtual or otherwise) is counterproductive and instead of helping you to get things done it stifles you and often times, can even cause you to work slower instead of faster.
Now this time management tip is for the bosses (and yes, this includes you if you delegate projects to a team). Do away with Monday meetings! This allows everyone to use Mondays to organize their week, deal with overflowing email inboxes and have a better handle on what’s been done and what needs to be done.
Managers like to start the week off informed and synced with “all-hands-on-deck” but because no one has been able to prioritize and delegate, that Monday meeting ends up being less than productive.
If you can’t convince the powers-that-be to do away with Monday meetings, take some time on Friday to prep for the Monday meeting.
Maybe you won’t fall in love with Monday, but perhaps you can make it more productive and see it as the gateway to your productive week rather than the first few steps of another long march to Friday!
I am off to go love my Monday! What about you?
