People hate Monday mornings. Today is the first day in more than a month – since I left MegaCorp for early retirement – that I am getting up for some kind of work. I’m heading out of town for a one day meeting with a company for which i serve on the board of directors. It’s a paid gig once every 90 days – but has me thinking about the feeling of Monday morning and the ‘performance anxiety’ that accompanies it.
The board is actually quite an enjoyable thing to be involved in and the meetings are comprised of a great group of people who do their best to help the company (with thousands of employees around the world) make the best decisions. Being involved with SmallCorp has been a good counterbalance to my work at MegaCorp. We meet the night before for a nice dinner and catch up socially. Sometimes, including today, I fly in early to spend some extra time with SmallCorp management.
That said, since I am waking up on Monday morning to head to work, some of those old Monday Morning feelings are creeping in. Half way through the day on Sunday I thought – “Damn! I have to start getting ready for the meeting this week!” In honor of these Monday morning anxieties, I thought I would share this small collection of memes that capture the feeling of work-depression that often starts the week. Enjoy!
