“- How are you today? – Oh, Monday Blues! How good can you feel on a Monday!”
Have you heard anything like this?
To me, it happens every Monday. That at least one person I ask gives that answer. Or something close to that.
And it is sad! Really! And especially if the candidate is a senior executive. In the “Monday Blues” mood, how can you possibly inspire and lead anyone?!?
And if anything, we should feel excited to go to work. It is where we spend the most time. And I may be idealistic, but we do live in a world where there are plenty of opportunities.
If we don’t like what we do, we always have three choices: 1. Stay and accept 2. Stay and try to change the situation 3. Leave
But complaining is not an option. It just doesn’t help anyone!
So let’s all choose to respond: “It is a Monday. I look forward to an awesome week ahead!”
