Monday, although not the first day of the week; at least according to the Bible. I believe in the Bible. Monday is the first day of the working days of the week. This name is derived from old English Mōnandæg and middle English Monenday.
Well, not to deviate from the main objective of this post which is to get you prepared to face your first working day after the weekend by sharing or reminding you of some encouraging quotes to kickstart your day. I know I do not need to tell you how important Monday is but let’s just remind ourselves.
Monday is very important because it sets the tone for your week. In Africa, Nigeria especially we believe as you start your Monday so you end your week. Check here. It is the starting line and usually determines how the rest of your week goes. So, we want to start our first day on a positive and a new note.
Although sometimes, this could be hard to do because, well there might be so many other circumstances eating away at our minds making it difficult to focus or to perform like we use to do. This is why we need some boost to keep us going.
