Do you do anything special or just treat it like every other day?

Hi @richardfliu. Great Mondays normally start on Sundays by taking a quick view of my calendar to plan my next week. Mondays, I try to wake up early before everyone else, get some exercise, and meditation. That said, this is my goal. I often find my self missing one or more of those three goals, which results in procrastination (:/) Hard truth:)

@eivindhaa That's a really cool schedule! How long do you usually meditate for?

@richardfliu Thanks! I tend to meditate for 10 minutes a day. More than 10 minutes, I find it hard to retain the schedule over a longer period. What about your Mondays?

Every friday, i have a list of phone calls ready to call on Monday and do that vigorously :) Whom to call? What to say? what problems do we solve and why we should be given a chance! Helps me understand customer pain points and their lingo. Find more customer segments and also keep refining my pitch each time

@nilova_pande Hi Nilova. Really interesting method! Do you schedule customer interviews for this type of calls?

My Monday day is similar to everyday. I am trying to train myself with daily habits. Sometimes, I takes off a little bit.

I do a weekly planning on Sunday night itself. Monday is a no big deal if can remove the concept of weekends from our mind. There are days and we can take everyday as same and do our best. Did you know according to a Gallup Study 84% of people globally hate there jobs and mostly these are people who hate to start the Monday. If starting a new week gives you pain its time to thing about your work and find something that is more exciting.

I start week on Sunday, so Monday becomes just a usual day. On Sundays, while everyone else are resting, you can put things in order and nobody bothers you. And Monday (which anyway is start day of working week) is less stressful.

As I work remotely with a flexible schedule and work on a startup in my free time, Sundays are not much different from other days. Feed the cats, then exercise, meditation, morning tea, procrastionation reading news and email, breakfast, coffee, then work. If I manage to have my 25h of main work during the weekdays, I would devote more time to my startup, but going out for a walk with my wife can happen on any day. I'm trying not to get too tired on weekdays so that I don't have to rest on weekends.

This is a weirdly topical question for our launch today. We created a tool to help make sure you get your morning right (Autopilot). It's particularly important on Mondays since in the same way that the morning sets the tone for the day, the monday can set the tone for the week. I resonate with people who said it starts on Sunday though. I like to do a goal setting and general week envisioning. But also - my "mondays" often fall on thursdays, fridays, and tuesdays, because I use non-traditional 4 day long weeks, which I have found are better for productivity.

I usually start my week on Sunday late night( early Mondays) to plan my week ahead and finish couple of those tasks and then sleep. This keeps me excited for the week, which also gives me a good reason to wake up on Monday mornings.

The same as I kick off every day, I grab my coffee and go for a walk in the park 🌲. That's my moment of silence before I dive in my ToDos.

I totally love Mondays, its one of my favorite days, I just feel is a refresh of everything, I try to keep this positive mindset, I feel is crucial to stay motivated and full of the energy I need for the goals ahead! I usually start checking out the priorities tasks on our common board. Also a great cup of tea + me-time with nice music just before going to the office helps!

Hello @richardfliu. Like others have mentioned, I think that Sunday evening is critical for a great start of the week. Typically I wind down with a cup of tea and review the items that our team and myself personally are looking to work on and accomplish for the week. It helps to have that information in the back of your mind... sometimes I even dream about a solution that we're working on! In terms of mindset, as @gd77 mentioned as part of the pattern of getting the most of a Monday, making Monday one of your favorite days can be huge. A lot of people think about Monday as a drag, or if you've ever seen Office Space "a case of the Moondays" 😂. Taking on any task with the intent of having fun and being productive will at least make it more enjoyable, if not also more productive. Mondays are no different.
