Kicking the Monday (or anyday) Blues

Mark Kawabe - Monday, October 21, 2013

It's Monday.

I see a lot of stuff on social media about Mondays. Most people don't seem to like them. I suspect it has something to do with going "back to work".

Perhaps it's just me, but my perspective differs on this. If you're not enjoying Monday because you have to go back to work, you might want to take a moment to consider why this is a bother to you. I know a few people to whom work in general is a bother, but this is different. You've chosen to work where you're working. If you don't like it, whose problem is that?

I think it's everyone's problem.

It's yours because you've chosen to do something you'd rather not be doing. How does that affect your attitude toward your job? I suspect it's not a beneficial impact.

If that's the case, then your employer and your customers are also affected because you're not happy. Your employer doesn't benefit from your full talent if you're not truly engaged in what you're doing. Your customers (internal and external) may also notice your attitude. This can cascade throughout a business and have all sorts of effects.

Not all of us have the luxury of doing things we enjoy, but it's our choice to make. If you've chosen a particular job, then do your best in it. Not just technically, but attitudinally. Figure out what benefit the job brings to you. Think up ways you can use your innate talents and abilities within your job so you will feel more fulfilled. Look inside and out at ways you can make your chosen job a better place for you to be.

There is always a way to be happier in your job. Sometimes it means making the choice to leave a toxic workplace and find a new position elsewhere. That's an extreme example, but it's always an option.

Monday is just another day, and every day provides us with multiple opportunities to learn, grow and improve. What does this have to do with internet marketing? Nothing - and everything : )

Every day you have an opportunity to do something online to engage your customers in a meaningful way. Many will. Most won't.

How will you spend the rest of your Monday?
