Good morning. This is Laura.

Welcome to the new corner office the podcast where we share strategies for thriving in the new world of work or location and hours are more flexible than in the past.

Can I get to make set decisions for Monday so you can free up mental space for more important matters?

I'm taking today's tip from Kendra. Adachi new book The Lazy genius way and it's you sure strategies for running households and life more effectively.

She writes in the book that Monday's used to be pretty rough for her, which I think we can all sympathize with but then she hit upon the idea of making a decision once and running with that decision again, and again, she made one decision about her outfits and meal choices for Mondays and began each week wearing an eating the same thing as she did the week before with that decision about her Monday outfit and her Monday meals made she could save her energy for other things.

I think this is a great idea. I'm sure you've stumbled out of bed Monday mornings and stood in front of the closet deciding what to wear if you know, the answer is black pants and a certain dye shirt. Then you no longer have to think about this question if you know the answer to what's for dinner is pasta because it is every Monday. You don't have to devote brain power 200 this when you could be figuring out how to serve a new client.

Now, of course you can decide once on stuff for any day, but there is a particular genius prop C lazy genius to doing this for Monday many people start the week in a discombobulated State. They didn't go to bed on time the night before and so they're tired. They know there was a big pile of work waiting for them, but they don't know exactly what's in the pile and so is easy to feel fried and that's too bad because we tend to have more energy for anything at the start of it tackle a big project Monday morning and the week will be amazing to tackle that big project though. You have to conserve your energy.

And here's where the Monday choice is coming to play. It's only one day of the week wear whatever you feel like on Tuesday, but having a Monday morning uniform means that Monday and be more awesome.

So today I think about what sort of decisions could help you navigate Monday. Maybe it's your breakfast choices. Maybe it's what you wear or what you dress for little kids in maybe it's what you listen to maybe it's what workout you do. Maybe it's who you call first from work. Maybe it's what you watching the evening in any case decide once for Mondays and then you don't have to decide again. You can use your saved energy or whatever you like.

In the meantime, this is Laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to succeeding in the new corner office.
