Good morning and Happy Monday!

Seems like an odd greeting, I know, but Monday Motivation is all about starting anew, each week. We get 52 of them this year (every year), and 5 of them in January alone.

But Mondays don’t have to suck. It’s a great way to start over, each week, after you’ve played and rested on the weekend (and your Monday might actually be a Wednesday, but it’s still the start of your week).

Let’s start with a simple recalibration of our thoughts. Mike Dooley often says, “Thoughts become things: Choose the good ones.” He’s not wrong. What we think about, we bring about. So here’s your Motivation for this Monday:

Now’s the time to think new thoughts – about yourself, about your world, about your job(s), about your loved ones. I used to tell my kids, “Focus on the good things.” It’s a new year. What good things can you focus on now?

Happy New Year and Happy New Monday!
