Which Day Of The Week Are You Most Productive ?
When I worked the 9-5 commuter job, Mondays were always a drag. I always referred to a line in a song I heard the morning DJ’s sing many years ago: “Monday, it bites the big one…”. That single line summed up the day, from the early morning jolt through, well, at least lunch.
Fridays always seemed to be the blow-off days. If not a scheduled vacation day, then a day that begged for a longer than usual lunch break. And, as I’m sure everyone else in the working world did (does), leaving five or ten minutes early was a pre-requisite for a Friday afternoon.
Hump day, aka Wednesday, was a slow midpoint of the weekly drudgery. I recall many Wednesday afternoons swinging through the mall and picking up a few “feel good” additions to my wardrobe. Of course this was done during lunch, and I was always back to work within the hour…riiight…
Now that I work from home, all my days are equally productive. I don’t have the human interactions and distractions that comes with a commuter job. Nor do I have a boss telling me to move from one project to another. I am my boss. I know what has to be done. My reputation and livelihood depend on top-notch performance. Every day of the week – including weekends – are productive. None more so than another.
So what is your most productive day of the week, if you have one ?
