About Monday
Monday, the day office working people dread, may not be that bad.
Monday is a fresh start, a clean slate after the weekend. Our brains are better primed to make decisions on Monday.

The Monday Case

Google searches for 'Diet', 'Gym' 'Quit smoking' and other common goals spike on a Monday.

On Monday we are slightly more self-aware and can envision the bigger picture of our ongoing lives.

Happiness and success

Happiness is a key driver and a precursor of success.

Positive feelings make the brain work better. They trigger the release of serotonin and dopamine, which significantly enhance motor control, motivation, memory, problem-solving and mental focus.

If during a meeting, you perceive an emotional threat, your brain will release stress hormones that will attempt to remove complexity from the situation. These stress chemicals will flush out bits of data that seem unimportant.

If just one bit of data is flushed out of your rational brain, you will be left with 120 options. (5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120). It effectively means that you just lost 600 possibilities.
