Each day of the week serves a purpose.
Each day has a specific way that it should be executed in order to win the week.
If you execute each day with discipline…
The week is yours!
Now for me the week actually starts on a Sunday so we will start there:
Monday is not won without effective preparation on a Sunday. This involves effective regeneration of the body, some entertainment for the mind and some reconnection with the soul. On top of that, foundations MUST be laid with your purpose (job) so that you have already prepared yourself to build the momentum you need to win the week. Can you imagine a strong man turning up to pull a truck in competition without the correct shoes and equipment? No! Not being prepared to start work on Monday would be like the strong man turning up to pull the truck with bare feet! Send those emails, write that to do list, prepare your food, iron your shirt. Whatever it is you need to do for your purpose, make sure it’s done and you’re ready for Monday morning. Once you have done this you can regenerate your body, I do this through yoga. You can entertain your mind, I like to watch movies. You can spend some time with your SELF in order to ensure you are present and connected, I get into nature. Lay the foundations correctly on Sunday and you will win the day!
You are now walking into Monday ready to build that momentum you need to win the week because of Sunday’s preparation. Now it’s time to put it to good use and get moving. Monday should be a day of attack! From a work perspective, everyone else will be slow and groggy because they have not laid the foundations on a Sunday like you did. You need to wake them up from their weekend slump and get them working for you. For example, instead of emailing, jump on the phone and deliver your requests energetically to the person on the other end. They are more likely to work for you if you transfer them some energy. Make them laugh or ask them how they are. Don’t drain them, pick them up! They will leave the conversation enthusiastic and will be more likely to move on what you need doing to win your day. From a training perspective, I will participate in back to back striking martial arts sessions to get moving and build momentum for the week. Attack Monday with energy! That’s how you win!
The highly energetic attack you carried out on Monday will be paying off Tuesday morning. Something to mention here, Tuesday morning you should wake up with a very clear mind. This is down to nutrition. On a weekend, like many others, I am more relaxed with my diet. I will fast in the day as I always do but I will break fast in a more relaxed way. Sometimes Monday I will still feel a bit groggy from the lower quality food but after some lemon water in the morning and high quality nutrients when I break fast in the evening, I’m on my way back to balance. Tuesday morning is when I truly feel my mind working at full power for me so I make use of it and so should you! Be creative on Tuesdays. I write content for Saviour World and train Jiu Jitsu. A clear mind helps me to express myself better through words and I perform better in sparring. Nurture your creative side, continue to eat nutrient dense foods and you will win Tuesday!
A tough day for many but not you! This is no hump day. The key to winning Wednesday is what you did on Tuesday. You nurtured and trained your creative side so you are now nice and relaxed. Most people have gone too hard Monday and Tuesday and now they are already tired. The week needs to end for them but you are just reaching full momentum and will make it count today. Stay in the flow and complete tasks as efficiently as possible. When you are in the flow there is a lot of dots connecting and you must keep connecting them until you cannot see anymore. Then you know you have finished. From a training perspective, I like to put in a solid strength and conditioning session on a Wednesday. It’s nice to get your headphones on and just be with the weights and your music. Wednesday is flow day! You’re calm and energised still, whereas others are fading. Set an example and show them how it’s done. That’s how you win a Wednesday!
