"Thank God for Monday" by Shawn Randleman

Good day #Smartpreneurs! Today I want to reflect on why Monday is the best day for true entrepreneurs or professionals. We all must admit, that at some point in life "Monday" is the worst day of the week! Think about it! For many of us, we just got off of a two day mini vacation. What makes Monday's so hard, is the fact that the weekends takes us out of our normal daily routine. It's hard to get back on track any time, you take a break. But the most successful people in the world know that Monday is the most critical day of the workweek. Today I want to explain why we should "Thank God for Monday"


WORK
Now my full-time/part-time startup/freelancer workers it's critical to start work early on Monday! For some reason unlike career professionals, entrepreneurs believe they do not need to follow a Monday-Friday 9 to 5 schedule. They believe since they are the boss, they can work anytime they want too. Sorry, this is far from TRUE! Your schedule should be 7am to 11pm Monday until Saturday at least for the first 12 months of a startup. Now I know this is hard for my working class business owners, but you must dedicate at least 12 hours per week to your business and schedule it on Monday.


LIFE
In order to be massively successful in life you must stick to a schedule. Many times in life we allow the events around us to dictate our schedules. We never dedicate a day to schedule the next seven days of our life. I'm a firm believer that Monday should be your plan day! Usually by Monday morning most people know the outlook of the rest of your week. So it's easier to schedule appointments and to set goals at the beginning of the week. The simplest thing such as creating a meal plan for the week can save you extremely a lot of time and money.


BALANCE
In closing, Monday is the day you evaluate your goals for the week and confirm all of the week's appointments. You should set at least three priorities for the week. And get them done...Let me explain this further and give you some more tips, please listen to my 2-minute lesson:
