What is the Monday Revolution?
The Monday Revolution is about changing your personal approach to work and life. It’s about taking control of time and spending it on the things that matter. There is great satisfaction in getting things done. Who wants to spend long days in pointless meetings or writing reports that never serve any real purpose?
The Monday Revolution is a state of mind to apply on the first day of the week. It’s a metaphor for recognising that some things need to change now. It’s an approach that relies on simple steps to achieve smart ways of getting things done, immediately.
In the end we’re all going to die. What are you going to do between now and then?
Watch the Manifesto
Principle 1: Now, not later
The enemy of effective working is procrastination. What is wrong with now?
Principle 2: Simple, not complicated
Revolutionaries are mission clear. Too many moving parts and you’ll increase the chance of failure. Avoid the trap of trying to solve complex problems with complex solutions. Whatever you’re doing or saying, keep it simple.
Principle 3: Find better ways
Around you there are many examples of better ways to solve your own problems and create compelling opportunities. Learn to look outside.
Principle 4: Positive mindset
Revolutionaries never win without belief. Neither will you.
Principle 5: Evidence-based decision making
Sometimes there will be little to go on. But this is rare. More likely, the facts are there, but overruled by emotions. Be strong. Look for evidence to back up decisions. Before you decide, how do you really know?
Principle 6: Invest time wisely
Always in short supply and not easily stored for another day. A valuable resource. The Revolutionary spends their time on the right things each week to improve the chances of effective results and maximum satisfaction.
