Terrific Tuesday

Why is Tuesday so terrific? Because it's not Monday.

Even though I no longer work outside of my home office, Monday is still a down day for me. The day one gives up the carefree weekend and gets the nose to the grindstone again.

The romance languages—Spanish, French and Italian—have similar names for Tuesday: martes, mardi, and martedi, all derivations of the Roman god of war name, Mars.

When the Anglo-Saxons adopted the 7-day week, they followed suit, naming the 3rd day of the week after their god of war, Tiu or Tyr as the Vikings called him.

In the business world of today, week's begin with Monday, but Sunday is actually the first day of the week. At least for now since all things seem to be changing.

Takeaway Truth

In any event, act like the god of war and attack your work load today. I intend to do so.
