A productive, happy, and effective day is usually achieved by starting out fast and peppy in the morning. Unfortunately, the day is often lost to many of us even before we get out of bed: we self-destruct as soon as we wake up, dreading the thought of having to go to work. For most people, Monday mornings in particular can be the most difficult time of all. If you have trouble getting started each week, here is some timely advice on beating those Monday morning blues… 1. Finish as many jobs as possible on Friday. If you finish as many tasks as you can before the weekend, you will feel much better knowing that these matters are not hanging over for Monday morning. 2.

In difficult times, managers are often called on to exercise their powers of veto. Saying 'yes' is so much easier - it's certainly so much less confrontationalist and unpleasant. But managers often have to say 'no' - to proposed expenditures, to the call for extra staff, and to new ideas and other proposals from staff. There is a right way to say 'no' and to minimise the rejection or disappointment that may result... 1. Know when to say no. No is a powerful word. Here's when you might want to use it, suggests motivational writer John Milne: Say No to allow you to define your priorities. Consider international speaker Dr James Dobson. He had to say no to hundreds of speaking invitations that were taking him away from his family. Say No to take control of your time. Control this precious resource by saying a selective, definite no to those meetings and invitations that consume your valuable [...]
