The Mamas and The Papas Had It Right….

"Monday Monday…so good to me"

You’re probably reading this on Monday.

Monday is not my favorite day of the week, ’cause the weekend is just long enough to give me a taste of freedom and a change of pace.  Then back to reality.

That makes me resent Monday…but I digress.  For whatever it is to you…Monday IS a fresh start to the week, and just like you can wake up in the morning and decide to be grumpy or happy, you can start out your week choosing to set a new height on the bar, or continue with the same ole, same ole.

It doesn’t have to be rocket surgery…just pick one thing you’d like to step-up, or move ahead with, or make new…and set that as your priority for the week.  By Friday (or maybe earlier if you’re lucky), you will have achieved it.

If you do the same things, you’ll achieve the same results.  If you don’t like your current results, change what you do.

What’s the old saying?:  "…Nothing will be different until the dissatisfaction with the status-quo overcomes the fear of change…"  (that’s gotta be a paraphrase, Confucius could say that in about 5 words somehow.)

Personally, my goal this week is to find, approach, and have a compelling conversation with one new possible client.  Maybe two.  We’ll see….it’s Monday.
