It's Tuesday, get to work

If you are at work right now, you should know this --- Tuesday is the most productive day of the week, so get cranking!

A recent Accountemps survey of 150 senior executives from the nation’s 1,000 largest companies found that 57% favored Tuesday as their most productive day. Monday is the catchup day after the weekend and a common day for meetings. It was no surprise that Friday was considered the least productive day of the week (we have the weekend on our minds) “Many view Tuesday as an opportunity to focus their efforts and establish momentum for the rest of the week,”said Max Messmer, chairman of Accountemps

Meanwhile, Accountemps, a temporary staffing firm for accounting, finance and bookkeeping, offers suggestions to keep productive throughout the week:
–Spend 10 to 15 minutes to plan and prioritize your tasks for the day.
–Cluster tasks that require similar effort or resources so you’re not switching gears often.
–Designate a time to check e-mails so you’re not easily distracted.
–Take short breaks throughout the day so you remain refreshed.
_ Don’t put off working on unpleasant or overwhelming assignments. Overcome procrastination by breaking a project into smaller tasks.

Tuesday is my deadline day so it happens to be my most productive. Let me know what you think of this study. Has today been your most productive day?
