The Mamas and The Papas had a major hit song in the 60s by this title. One of the lyrics reads, “Monday Monday, can’t trust that day.”
Many people in the world feel Monday physically, mentally, and spiritually. Hung over from the relative freedom of the weekend, Monday represents a return the grind of the modern work week. That alone makes it depressing for many. This is compounded by the fact many people are doing something they just stomach for the paycheck.
Here’s the thing. If you can get past all that drama, you can put yourself ahead of the pack. People’s distaste for Monday causes them to write it off or cruise through it. This means many salespeople, writers, business people, and others start their week behind the curve. By pushing on Monday, can give you a bigger advantage over the competition than in any other day because the competition, unless they love what they do, is falling behind all day Monday.
Monday, as we’ve discussed before, is one-seventh of out lives. If you can make it yours, it can become your secret weapon rather than a scourge.
Lean for the tape today, my friends!
