TGIF right? I mean of course everybody loves Friday because for most of us its the end of the work week and the beginning of the weekend. Because of that though, too often Friday can tend to become a very unproductive day as its too easy for us to have our eyes on the weekend. I completely understand that, but there is one simple little trick you can do that can make Friday more productive in both your business/professional life and your personal life.
If you keep any sort of weekly stats, figures, cycles, etc., use Friday as the beginning of your week, not Monday. That little simple shift in thought will change your mindset. Making Friday the beginning of your week for some things will have the effect of making it a more productive day because most of us like to start the week off well.
In my Monroeville Chiropractor office, I use Friday as the beginning of the week when I tabulate all of my weekly numbers. Weekly patient weekly visits, weekly profits, expenses, etc. are all done on a Friday-Thursday basis. This works well for any business regarding any sort of weekly stat, calculation, or figure.
It also can work well for personal situations. Do you try to go to the gym x amount of days/week? Well if so, use Friday as the beginning of that count. Do you count calories? Use Friday as the start.
This little shift in your mindset can be used in many different applications, but they all have the same end result of making Friday a more productive day and thus allowing you to accomplish more in whatever it is that you choose to do.
And to all of you weekend warriors out there, think of it like this, if you work to make Friday more productive it will tend to go faster and then the weekend is here sooner! So as you can see, this shift in thought has nothing but great outcomes.
So enjoy, and Happy Friday and beginning of the week to you all!
