How To Make it Through a Monday
Some people love Mondays and some people hate them.
If you love Mondays, more power to you. Embrace the week with a fresh perspective, smile, and share your favorite tips to crush your work week in the comments below.
If you hate Mondays, you might consider a strategy recommended by psychologists that includes:
- Investing in social connection on the weekend
- Exercising for ten minutes before work
- Getting up early
- Setting an intention
- Meditating for five minutes
- Spending time making a to-do list before coming in
- Carving out time to read
- Meal-prepping over the weekend
- Considering if you’re actually just biased against Mondays (hey, it happens)
Regardless of how you feel about the first day of the work week, the one thing everyone has faced along the way is a technology struggle.
Whether it be a PICNIC/operator error or something truly wrong, keeping perspective of the wonderful things technology allows us will help you get through your challenge — at least until IT arrives.
Five Motivational Quotes about Technology
Here are five motivation quotes for anyone working in (or with) technology.
“Holding back technology to preserve broken business models is like allowing blacksmiths to veto the internal combustion engine in order to protect their horseshoes.” — Don Tapscot
The reality is, technology is the vehicle that conducts a large amount of how business is done in 2020 and beyond. When businesses hold back on that investment, everyone from customers to employees feels the lag and carries the burden. Remember that investing in technology — and even more importantly, how to properly use it — is the greatest gift you can give your business. If you don’t believe me, give your horse out front an extra carrot.
“Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.” — Bill Gates
The gift of knowledge that comes with technology is something everyone, no matter what company, role, or growth plan, agrees with. Data drives decisions. Insights inform strategies. Make sure you are on a level playing field by ensuring your tech is optimized and producing the information you need.
“Technology is best when it brings people together.” — Matt Mullenweg
At Perficient, we have colleagues all over the country — even all over the world. With this coverage, we rely on our technology to keep us on track as a united team.
“Let’s go invent tomorrow instead of worrying about what happened yesterday.” — Steve Jobs
Looking at historical data informs businesses of important trends, although try telling that to Steve Jobs. Technology makes envisioning (even dreaming!) about the future closer to reality.
At Perficient, we rely on trusted advisers to keep our clients abreast of the latest digital trends and considerations, allowing them to shape the future with their own, unique footprint.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” — Thomas Edison
Haven’t we all felt like this at some point? The good news is, there are plenty of opportunities for the problem-solvers of the world to make an impact and we are proud to implement the technology enables them to do so. So when you hit “Try #9,999,” take a breath, grab your metaphorical kite and key, and remember greatness is just around the next corner.
The good news is, just like life, technology is always evolving and there are numerous ways to transform it into what you want it to be. Did we miss any good quotes? Let us know in the comments or shoot us a tweet at @PerficientLife. Happy Monday!
