Monday morning is the best, especially after a holiday. I don't dread going back to work, I'm grateful for the rest I got and the chance to get my head out of “work mode”, but when the time to rest is over, I'm excited to get back to work and feel like I'm back on the plan. I'm not a type-A personality; I don't need to learn to relax or be more laid back. I've spent my entire life too laid back. I did it until it didn't feel good anymore, and now effort and discipline and energy and objective standards feel good. There's a time for being idle and I enjoy it, but I'm also glad when it's over.
