Are your Mondays getting harder and harder during the holiday season? If you’re like me, your weekends are packed with activity and flurry getting ready for the holidays and maybe just having fun with family and friends. You finally relax Sunday night, then comes Monday morning, and you are expected to kick into high gear when you walk into the office.
It’s pretty hard to shift gears sometimes, isn’t it? Yet, we have to keep pace with the speed of business. Customer demand and business does not slow down because it’s Monday morning. But how do you really start your Monday morning?
First, it starts (like all mornings) with waking up and the thoughts that are swirling in your mind when you first arise. Your thoughts can be, “I can’t wait to get to work today and tackle my projects.” Or, “I wish I could just stay home today.” The idea is that we are forming our attitude about our day as soon as we awake. Where does your thinking go from there?
