Today’s post is sponsored by PROCRASTINATION, which can actually be good for you.
When I get to the office on Monday, it takes me a little while to boot up and warm up. However, once that initialization process is complete, I find myself to be very productive. That weekend break, although never long enough, definitely helps to recharge my professional batteries, so on Mondays I feel like I can do anything.
What I fear are Wednesdays. They are far enough in the week for me to start feeling tired, but not close enough to the weekend to make me feel hopeful. What I found particularly helpful to get through a Wednesday is … work. Lots and lots of it. It works because I get so lost in all the running around that before I know it, it is time to go home.
So what I do, after a productive Monday, is I take it slow on Tuesdays. That does not mean I neglect my duties, but I organize the non emergent stuff and move it into a “do it later” pile. Sometimes, I even procrastinate a little on Tuesdays. Maybe daydream a little.
That way, when Wednesday comes, I have no choice but to pick up my “to do” pile, which has been accumulating for a day or two and JUST DO IT.
If you did not plan ahead and you did everything diligently on Tuesday, think of what you will need to do on Thursday, Friday, or maybe even over the weekend and do it TODAY. Cram as much as you can into this day. That way, you will be too busy to look at the clock today and you will have less to do the closer you get to the weekend.
What gets YOU through the hump?

“Do you feel cold and lost in desperation
(…) remember all the sadness and frustration
and let it go…”
