What day of the week do you find you are the least productive at work?
I am finding that my least productive day is not one that I would expect. After a crazy busy week (most weeks) and I finally get a day to be productive that happens to fall on a Friday…yeah, that’s my least productive day.
Not because I am thinking of the weekend plans or trying to give myself that stupid buzz-word, “self-care.” I am just out of motivation.
By the end of the week, I could care less if I get anything done.
I am sure my employer would hate to hear that. I actually don’t like to hear it because I really have a ton to do (catch up on email, start projects, complete unfinished projects, etc). But, I just can’t get myself to do any of it. I look at what I have to do, my list of things to do, and all the other stuff sitting on my desk and I just can’t.
Is this normal? To just run out of productive steam at the end of the week?
It’s interesting that that happens to you at the end of the week. I myself find that I have to battle the inertia of getting started every single day. So I would say you’re pretty normal, and that I hope you find your path to productivity regardless!
Thanks, Stuart. It’s a new week and the energy and intentions are renewed and I think it will be a good week! But, we’ll see if the steam keeps rolling as the week goes along.
Mornings are hard. No denying it. I drink lots of coffee. At the very least, it keeps me moving while I make frequent trips to the bathroom. 😉 I’ll drink an extra cup for you in hopes that maybe the mojo will find you. Good luck!
