If you are anything like me, I have found that getting started on Mondays and unwinding on Fridays are hard.
I recently came across an article published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on whether being motivated is “wired” into you at birth or learned behavior:
Turns out it is a little of both. So what do you do?
Come Monday morning, I am always struck by just how much I really have to do for the week. I look at my trusty “to do” list and wonder how I will be able to keep up. There are emails to answer, Social Media sites to attend to, my blog to write – and of course my “regular” work. Now, I am not complaining – I love to stay busy – but sometimes getting started is the battle.
I have found that “jumping right in” is my best plan of attack. You may have found yours (if so, I would love to hear about it!). But, I have also found that a little extra “motivation” can work wonders.
So every Monday I am planning on posting a quote to help you, and me, get started.
Now Fridays are a different story! When Friday rolls around, I am usually in search of a way to decompress and unwind. I have usually spent the past week busy trying to clear my “to do” list (and I am sometimes successful!). I have also had to deal with the inevitable things that come up unexpectedly that need my attention.
A post I read in a realbuzz.com blog section on Healthy Active Living outlined 10 great tips on how to relax:
I especially liked the suggestions to Listen to Music and Have a Laugh!
To that end, I will be posting a “Fun Fact” on Fridays. Some will be business related, and I will post others “just because” I find them interesting!
Starting the week of September 10, 2012, you can see my “Motivation Monday” and “Fun Fact Friday” posts. I welcome any posts you care to share. Just put them on my site! Thanks to you all….and have a great week!
