Now that you made it through that exhausting, arduous weekend of fun and frivolity, what is “Monday” for? Let’s Transform Mondays ok?
I mean really? Do you ever get much done on a Monday? Ever try calling anyone on a Monday morning? Chances are it goes right to voicemail :o)
I call it the “Monday Trance”…
Monday has become a “transition” day for a lot of folks between the weekend and the week. Notice the root of “Transition” has the word “Trance” built right in :o)
A little over ten years ago I started meeting every Monday with my friend Michael Guerin. We were both struggling with our businesses at the time. Mostly because we were “solo entrepreneurs”. I was trying to build my NLP and Hypnosis practice, workshops and trainings and he was building his as a financial planner and merchant account advisor.
And while we both enjoyed the freedom and flexibility of being “one man shops,” in the long term, solitary businesses don’t last.
After all, business is all about people. People working together to serve other people with our ideas, products and services…
Interesting dilemma for a couple of introverts.
so we chose to change our Monday Trance… Instead of being boring old “Monday” that everybody dreads, we made Mondays into…
And what we focused on is still what we focus on every week: Helping each other to Market, Manage, Motivate, Merchandise and Man-Up…
These days we usually talk on Saturday because by Monday we are already putting into action what we agreed with each other to do… But for me, Monday’s are just the best day of the week. It’s quiet. It’s usually the time I have to seriously consider and map out what my action steps for the week are.
And when I’ve been traveling and working on weekends, Monday is the day I catch my breath and recharge my batteries.
If Monday is a day you’ve been dreading lately… Let’s see if there is any way you can “reframe” it or shift it into something that automatically lights a fire in your heart to take your adventure to the next level.
If Monday messes with your mood… take a moment to ask what’s really going on?
- Are you unhappy in your work?
- Are you using work to escape something that happens on the weekends?
- Are you on your path with heart?
- How’s your body doing?
- Is this going to be another week of not moving it?
- or not feeding it the proper fuel for it to thrive and be strong?
Some folks like to check in with themselves and their goals for the week on Sunday evening.
I prefer Monday Mornings…
Either way, you might want to consider giving a little bit of conscious, creative reflection to today. Imagine totally CRUSHING IT this week as you look ahead and imagine where you would like to be by Friday…
Of course that is ONLY if you CHOOSE to accept the assignment.
Maybe you just want to chill out with a cool song that supports the assignment without actually doing the assignment. That’s fine too. Totally up to you.
Here’s your song for the day:
Now have an amazingly wonderful rest of your Masterful Monday! Or your “restful” Monday. Or your kick ass Monday… Or whatever kind of Monday you decide to have…
p.s.
