[Moxie Mondays] Make this your happy hour

Now we’ve got “new year new me” nonsense out of the way, I’m going to pile into another heap of codswallop.

The bifurcation of Mondays.

There are two Monday camps.

Camp the First: Ugh, Mondays are the worst thing ever, I hate my life, I hate my job, I hate my business, I hate Mondays, ugh.

Camp the Second: Mondays are brilliant! If you hate Mondays it means you’re an idiot who has created a crap life for yourself and you need to change everything right now! I love Mondays! YAY FOR MONDAYS!

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m somewhere in the middle.

I mean, if you get up every single Monday in Camp the First, there’s definitely something wrong in your life and you need to change it.

But if you get up every single Monday in Camp the Second, you’re either riding the ecstasy wave or in denial and you’re being kind of mean.

I love my business…

But sometimes it’s tough to get going on a Monday. Right?

You might feel a little stressed.

A little like your weekend hasn’t been long enough.

A little like going back to bed, frankly.

So every Monday, you’re going to get Moxie Mondays. (Moxie is an old slang word meaning many things, including “courage, impudence, and ability”.)

I’m going to share a little tale that’ll help you start your week on a high (or at least not on a low) and a song I love.

This Monday, the first of the new year, I give you this:

Make the first hour of your Monday morning a happy hour. (Yeah, I know I’m late today. In future, it’ll be more like 8am.)
