- We're happy for you if you love what you do and "Mondays don't suck" because you're enthralled by your work. Congrats! This article is for those in transition, and
- Not everyone's 'Monday' is actually Monday, we're asking that you apply these principles to the "First Day of Your Work Week" in order to get MAXIMUM results.
- I really don't care how much you love your job - there are still valleys and peaks in your life..
- What we do every week is simply offer actionable suggestions to make the valleys a little more... shallow.
Because let's face it- we all know that Mondays Suck! (to some degree)

Why Does This Monday Suck? (Click here to tell us why yours does!)
Is it just us or is this the absolute slowest Monday Morning of all time?
Todays theme is: "What else could I possibly be doing with my time?" - yeh, you know one of those real existential questions.
How to Make Mondays NOT Suck THIS WEEK
But First: Gratitude Corner
Thoroughly enjoyed writing this article tonight (we draft most of them on Sunday Nights FYI), some days it feels like a chore.. others it's invigorating.
At the end of the day, we get them out nonetheles
But now that all is said and done, we're still back at it again Making Mondays NOT Suck By:
Scheduling a Haircut
Say what you will about them, but with the growing popularity of the man-bun, men around the world are pioneering the whole "long hair, don't care" look a second shot. This week we've realized that we're long over-due for a trim and although Monday is usually the national barber's day off, we've booked our appointment a few days in advance to ensure we have something to look forward to later in the week.
As a seasoned vet (See exhibit A.) to the lifestyle (yes, long hair is a lifestyle bro.), we're here to share the do's and don'ts of growing the ol' curls out.
Do's and Don'ts of Growing the Cheddar
- DO make sure to get a regular edge-up so that everyone knows you're fresh. You should get the dead ends cut as well, otherwise your head will look like a wet mop. (Again, refer to Exhibit A.)
- DO find a good product to shampoo/condition/lather in order to keep your hair looking healthy and tamed (P.S. Also looking for suggestions here because still haven't found one)
- DO comb your hair once you're out of the shower, if you don't stuff gets frizzy and you look like one of those L'oreal Commercials that
- DO wear a trucker hat (manifest of course) so you can show off not only your dedication to the brand, but to represent your dedication to long term goal of growing your hair (if you've ever done it, you know how much effort it actually takes)..
- DON'T ridicule others for not having 'sick flow', those with long hair are classy and respect others decisions to live the convenient lifestyle that short hair allows
- DON'T gel your hair unless absolutely necessary - the cheddar is not to be tamed with grease and goop. Let those locks flow freely boys and gals..
- DON'T steal your sister's hair-ties. Get your own bro.
- DON'T go full Man-Bun unless you're ready to go full Man-Bun. No one likes a hardo.
Going to get a weekly trim this week and THAT's how we're going to #MakeMondaysNOTsuck - simply setting our Friday afternoon up well in advance.
That's All Folks!
And don't forget to vent to us about why your Monday Sucks, because just like this tweet (follow us on twitter) describes, we STILL think that Mondays generally suck.
Shooters shoot, and closers close. Go out there and crush this week.
