Attitude check…it’s Monday morning. Are you glad to be where you are at this moment? Did you hit the ground running and set your priorities for the day and week ahead? Are you off to a strong start to your work week or are you sipping that cup of coffee slowly as you head into your day wondering what’s next?
A recent medical university study found that there is a significant increase in blood pressure for many workers on Monday morning. It’s literally the peak day of the week for heart attacks and researchers have showed a direct correlation to stress levels at work and this sobering statistic.
I’m one of those people that actually looks forward to Monday mornings. I get a charge out of what’s going to unfold during the week and how your chamber team is going to make things happen. I enjoy communicating and connecting with you through the Monday Morning Briefing and hearing your feedback and ideas.
While every single Monday morning doesn’t always go as planned, over the years I’ve found that Mondays probably have more to do with attitude and preparation than anything else. It also comes down to the fact that as a chamber team, we are a group of people that truly love what we do. We are an organization that goes into every Monday morning with 100% of our time and resources dedicated to one thing: increasing the success, knowledge and networks of our members in the business community. It’s a pretty great way to start the day.
Your week is what you make it. Have a great one!
