It is late here in Minnesota, so just a little post to close the work week. There is an internet meme going around Facebook that says "Tuesday is just Mondays ugly sister." I couldn't agree more. Is it because Monday seems like the fresh start to the week, but by Tuesday you realize you still have the long week ahead of you? Businesses have acknowledged this as well. Kids eat free Tuesdays, and Two dollar Tuesdays at certain movie theaters. Super America doubles gas coupons on Tuesdays, and they accept from any other station. We try and stagger fill-ups to take advantage of this. With 7 tanks a month, $9.80 savings per month, and over $100 per year, it is smart to refuel the gas tank on Tuesday's.
What about our own tanks? I like Thursdays for that. I feel very productive on Thursdays, without any scientific or social reason. I'm often quite tired when I get up as Wednesday night is typically girls night out. It is by no means a down day at work or home. With coworkers flexing schedules or taking vacation days on Fridays, Thursdays are usually crammed. Between sports and school functions, nights are equally full, so there is no inherent rest built into the day. Maybe there is something astrological about a persons refuel day. I was born on Thanksgiving day, 1965. This of course was a Thursday. I try to defer important decisions to Thursday when possible. I avoid doing so on Tuesdays. I'm not a superstitious person, but this day of the week thing is ingrained in my head. What day do you find your inner energy tank refueled? If you have days that just seem to be off, what tricks do you use to push through and make the most of what reserves you have?
