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. We're location and hours are more flexible than in the past.

Today is to recognize that Monday isn't the only day of the week when we Pace ourselves and look at the whole week. We can feel less busy and get more done.

Now, I know that a lot of new corner office listeners love to plan me to hopefully you're even planning on my favorite planning day Friday so you can hit Monday morning ready to go. If so, that's wonderful. But I know that I sometimes fall into a trap as I plan ahead I over plan for Monday evening to get as many of my priorities for the week done as possible and that can make Monday feel like a bit of a slog and that's too bad because Mondays are rough as it is and they aren't the only day of the week most likely you will work on Tuesday Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to and given that you plan to work on those days. It's wisest to pace yourself to allocate your priorities over several days of the week.

So for instance, I'll often write my podcast scripts for the week on Mondays record them on Tuesdays. Write a column. I do on Wednesdays and record my Best of Both Worlds podcast with my co-host on Thursdays. Sometimes I get ahead of myself and think I should write in record on Mondays, but then inevitably I get tired and can't get to it or something comes up and I really dislike not getting to everything on my to-do list for a day. It makes me feel overwhelmed and that's silly because there's no reason it had to all get done on Monday Chris plenty of time on the other days too. Well, at least usually I do know that emergencies happen kids can get sick or Child Care Arrangements in fall through

And so it is tempting to try to cram as much as I can into a day that I know is available for work. And if I'm already working on Monday well time to make hay while the sun shines perhaps you are working under these constraints to

but I've also found that I rarely get zero time the rest of the week even on a rough day. It's possible to do one big thing. I'll get sub window of time while kids are watching a movie or the little ones are napping or my husband can cover I won't get nothing done. And I also tried to build a resilient schedule by leaving Friday open that weigh an extra day is available in case stuff comes up or if I haven't finished anything from the other days.

Monday should feel challenging but they should also feel doable by planning the whole week and allocating priorities more equally on different days. You can actually finish stuff progress motivational. It makes us want to keep going you can win the week by recognizing that Monday isn't the only day it's an important day for sure, but not the only one available thankful, but not cramped. You'll feel less busy and ultimately you'll get more done.

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