Monday is the most popular sick day! But Monday is the key day of the week!

We know it’s Monday but it’s also a new day, a new week, and in that lies a new opportunity for something special to happen. Fire yourself on a Friday night and come in on Monday morning as if a search firm put you there as a turnaround leader. Self-discipline is the ability to do what is right even when you don’t feel like doing it. Monday is a preset thermostat lowering the desire for weekend pleasure and heightening the aspiration for weekday business. To move the world, we must first move ourselves, so start with a Monday!
