Starting Fresh on Mondays?

The day every new project you start is doomed to fail.

It's the joyous start to another delightful week of <insert enthusiastic expletives here yourself>. Monday—formerly known as Monandæg in Old English— is supposed to bring a fresh start associated with the moon.

For some, it's the most productive day of the week. Research indicates that Monday is when we're most likely to make progress towards our goals.

It's also the day with the most births. Doctors often induce labor on a Monday to ensure their Thursday golf rounds are uninterrupted.

But, did you know that in 🇮🇹, there's a perception that starting something new on a Monday is doomed to fail?

Our team starts the week off with an even more extended, extended team stand-up. It's also the day we take stock of all the brilliant ideas that came through Asana over the last week.

As the day drags on, we push the countdown timer forward, inch by precious inch. It's the beginning of the grind until we finally reach the Promised Land: the weekend.

What's your take on Mondays?
