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?
