A fresh start – so use it!

So it’s Monday morning (or it will be soon for most of you).

Where are you headed this week? Have you thought about what you want to achieve over the next 7 days? If you haven’t, why not? If you have, is it any different to last week?

I’m not being critical. I haven’t either. Which is what inspired this brief post.

Most weeks are spent sailing on by. We sail through school, work, or looking for work, and every now and then we have events on the weekend that we can think about through the week. Playing sport, attending a wedding, having lunch with family or friends, or just chilling out and watching a movie. The weekend quickly comes to a close, and suddenly you wake up and it’s Monday morning again.

Is that an aimless way to live? Not necessarily. Life is life and everyone can live it how they choose. But sometimes it can be helpful to give your life just a wee bit more meaning.

I wrote a previous post about not hating Monday’s, but rather using them to your advantage. Monday’s are a chance for a fresh start. Most people align Monday with the start of their new goal, be it work-related, dieting, or any other personal goal. Who decides to cut out junk food on a Friday night? No-one!! The weekend is your last chance to throw down as many Big Macs as you can!

So here’s a task for your brand new Monday. List 3 things you want to achieve this week. Make sure one of those things is different to anything you’ve done for at least the last month.

My one goal for this week, which is something I haven’t done for quite a long time is go for a bike ride. That’s it. Something small, relatively easy, and healthy!

Life is one long series of accomplishments. But it’s hard to accomplish anything if you don’t set out to in the first place.

    1. Great to hear! Sometimes I don’t like Sundays because they can feel meaningless and drift off into the distance before I know it. It’s a good idea to have a few goals on the weekend, even if they are based around relaxing and chilling out before the working week.

  1. This is great, except I just saw it and it’s Tuesday and I work overnight, and should be napping shortly. So I will save this post and read it Monday morning as if it’s a new post ha ha ha, because I like this idea.

  2. Great post….even when your retired you can get stuck in a routine and you can give your life new meaning, like taking up a new hobby or an old one that can be pursued with fresh ideas.
