I love Mondays.

There, I said it. I love sending my kids back to school after the weekend and looking at a fresh week, organizing my calendar and knowing all this time is in front of me to spend doing that thing I do.

I love getting into the office early and starting the coffee pot in silence. I love getting into the office early and starting the coffee pot in silence. I love having a quiet minute before the roar of the week. My weeks are often like a set of big waves crashing the shore. Some weeks I get tossed around and spit out the other side trying to find all my belongings on the beach. Some weeks I surf that water like a badass. But on Monday… Monday I get to start fresh. On Monday mornings I feel excited and empowered. Like a reset button has been pushed.

In a business where the clients are on their own agenda and timetable, and they expect me to be the fixer and the doer, a reset button is extremely important. After all, it’s not like I’m on bankers hours. Since I make it a point to get going pretty early in the morning, my days of working really late are purposely fewer and fewer. Summer is coming, so those are likely to ramp up again, but those Monday morning meetings with myself remind me that I’m in charge of when and how I say yes.

I love getting into the office early and starting the coffee pot in silence.

Back in the day, when I used to temp, one of the women I worked with would rush home and clean her house on Thursday nights so that it was spotless when she got home on Fridays. She said it helped her enjoy her weekend to know everything was done and all she had to worry about was enjoying her time off.

Do you have a day like that? Share with me on Facebook or Twitter your key day, and any tips that help your week go a little smoother.

At home, Christie
