Wednesday is known as “Hump Day”, it is the farthest we get from either the weekend past or the weekend ahead. I like to look at days a little differently, not in relation to weekends. If you are constantly “working for the weekend” you will be missing out on 70% of life!
Monday – Breakfast of the Week
I like to think of monday as the “Breakfast” of the week. It’s the most important day of the week, just like breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day. If you build up momentum and enthusiasm on a monday, it will carry you through the rest of the week, feeding you with power and energy to be as productive as possible.
Starting off with a crappy monday is like eating a terrible breakfast, it leaves you with a bad taste in your mouth and no energy to continue on.
Tuesday – Riding the Wave
On Tuesday you should be riding the wave of a powerful and forceful monday experience. All your projects (big or small) that you’ve started on monday should be underway or facing completion. Keep the momentum going, be productive, get some things accomplished, and feel enthusiastic about the week ahead.
Wednesday – The Hump
Wednesday does need some special treatment. It may be that you’ve finished projects and need new ones, or it may be you are facing difficulty and want to give up. We must face wednesday like a new monday, like a new rocket blast. Get your fruit, get your coffee, get your focus, and blast off! Treat wednesday like a new launching pad! Finish projects, find new ones!
Thursday and Friday – Reflective Reading by the Fire
Now if we’ve done the previous days right, we should be able to face thursday and friday with ease. Either we have plenty of work to do (continuing the weeks assignments and projects) or we are winding down. In either case this is a perfect time to continue working and planning for the next week. Relax, we’ve been productive, efficient, and successful. Now we get to reflect on what we did, didn’t do, and can do in the future.
Also take some time to look at the weekend, not as an escape, but as a way to accomplish even more. Whether it be with family, or friends, or at the gym, or on side projects, or even if its just laundry and cleaning your room!
