On most Mondays, I feel like the guy in the picture above. Which is why I always schedule for Mondays, tasks that are the most routine and simple. Mind-numbing though these tasks may be, they require the least amount of brain power.

Obviously customers and colleagues may still come to me for help but that’s not within my control. I do what I can in my little sphere of influence. What’s that famous Christian saying …?

“God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”

– Reinhold Niebuhr

So how do you deal with your Mondays? :mrgreen:

    Hmm, let’s see. How do I deal with Mondays? Well, I get out of bed at about 9am, watch some TV, do some blogging, check bloglines, do some housework, take Puddy for a walk … Mondays are my Sundays, hehe. I work all day Saturday, so my weekend is Sunday-Monday so while everyone is struggling to go back to work and deal with Monday-itis, I’m relaxing! *grin*

    herman: that’s a given but it’s hard to shake off the mini-holiday mode.

    blur ting: heheh, the first day back from a break always suck.

    Lupin: yeah I feel sleepier than usual on Mondays. Then Fridays I perk up. Heheh.

    Katie: there’s good and bad in that. And you are also only postponing the inevitable – Tuesday IS your Monday. Hahah!

    mondays I OD on caffiene. if I usually need 3 cups to tide me through, mondays I usually down 5 cups.

    I don’t think it’s boredom that brings blue mondays – I’ve just started and I still need my caffiene shot! Heck, on my first day (monday) the first thing I did when I got to town was to hide out in starbucks.

    It’s just getting back into routine thats hard…and I heart thursdays too:)
