I hate Mondays, is a statement that millions of employees around the world keep repeating constantly.
Mondays are widely viewed as the day where the suffering starts. You start your work week on Monday and you just wish that Friday arrives in no time.
This is a huge problem that needs to be fixed.
Why would people hate Mondays?
1 – Monday is when people usually go to work.
This is extremely obvious. There is no doubt that most of the employed people nowadays are working hard not because they love their job, but because they need the paycheck that they get at the end of the month to pay their bills and support their families.
If you don’t love what you do at work, your Mondays will definitely be a nightmare to you.
Even the people who really love their jobs may throw the ‘I hate Monday’ statements every now and then. No matter how much you love your job, you will definitely pass through some time where you just want to take a long break and not look back.
2 – Monday is when your employed friends will no longer be available.
Even if you’re not employed and the start of a week does not mean that you’ll have to resume any work, your Mondays might still be different.
We are social creatures whether we like it or not. In fact, I have written a full article about this subject in particular. Being social creatures means that the absence of the people that we usually talk to will make us feel incomplete.
Since it’s Monday, all of your employed friends will be unavailable. They will be fulfilling their job duties somewhere and they won’t have any free time for your awesome plans.
While this problem will persist over the whole work days of the week, it will have the most impact on Monday since you may have just seen your friends the day before.
So, people may still hate Mondays even though they are not even employed.
How to solve the problem?
There is the easy way, and the hard way.
I’ll start with the easy way.
So here you go, I hate Mondays, what should I do?
You need to make sure that you don’t hate what you do on Mondays and you’ll be fine.
How do you do that? By switching to a job that you really like.
A job will take so much from your time, and if you do not make sure that you like what you do at the job, then you will end up facing the same nightmare each Sunday night.
You might think that switching jobs each now and then would not be a good idea for your resume.
That may be right, but you’re not born to just work for someone else till you die, you are born for greater reasons.
As this Forbes article suggests, switching jobs regularly is great because you really want to make sure to stay away from employers who favor your stability over your work quality.
What this means is that you should never worry about the effect that switching jobs have on your career. Instead you should be grateful for that effect.
Why? Because it is keeping you away from all the employers who want to take control of you by making you work for them for the rest of your life.
What you want to do instead is work for employers who are happy to have your skills on board for a reasonable amount of time and are also happy to see you move to your next life destination.
But what if you can’t afford to change jobs? What do you do next? Does that mean that your Mondays will hunt you forever?
There is a solution to every problem out there.
If you can’t afford to leave your job, you can start looking for another job while employed, once you secure yourself, you’ll be free to move on.
However, If you can’t apply for other jobs while working somewhere else, you can still work on your own business in your free time.
It’s easier than you think to start a side hustle online. All you need is a computer and a vision. You could start a blog like I did, a YouTube channel, an e-commerce website, you could work as a freelancer to save some money so that you can survive leaving your job, and the possibilities are endless.
It will be a lot of hard work, but it’s worth it. I would prefer to work hard for a year to pursue something that I love instead of working less, in fields that I hate, for the rest of my life.
I’ll end this section with a legendary quote from a legendary man.
Steve Jobs mentioned in one of his speeches that your work is going to be a large of your time. He also adds that the only way to be satisfied is to do great work, and the only way you can do great work is to love what you do.
That sums it all up. Want to love your Mondays again? You’ll have to make sure that you love what you do at your job.
How to get rid of the ‘I hate Mondays’ statement the hard way?
By changing the whole corporation structures.
When Facebook first started, Mark Zuckerberg and his team used to show up late for work, and stay up late at night coding Facebook.
They had parties, drinks, fun, and they have written a lot of code in between all that.
Here’s more about the early life of Facebook in this Business Insider article.
Facebook later became one of the most successful companies around the world. They didn’t have a toxic environment, a strict job schedule. All of what Mark cared about was that the employees get the job done.
Many of the most successful companies around the world are starting to adapt this mentality. You really don’t need to force someone with your schedules as long as they are fulfilling all the tasks required and meeting their deadlines.
Online jobs are becoming more and more available as it’s working very well for both the employers and the employees.
Employers will have their job requirements fulfilled for a lower cost (they won’t have to pay for more offices and the expenses that come with it), and employees are having more flexibility to their work environments which make them hate Mondays less than they used to.
Why is this the hard way to solve your monday problems though? Because it’s out of your hands.
So, if you really want to love your work days again, you better take action now and not wait for corporations to fix that for you as it might take them forever.
