Guess Which Day You're Most Productive?

So what's the most productive workday?  Monday, when everyone's fresh from two days off? 

 Wednesday, hump day, when the week's half-over?  If you guessed Tuesday, you'd be right.

That's because, Tyler Falk quotes Max Messmer, Accountemps chairman,  "Many workers spend Monday catching up from the previous week and planning the one ahead. On Tuesday, employees may begin to have time to focus on individual tasks and become more productive."

Falk notes that Tuesday was thought to be the most productive day by 39 percent of HR managers, while Thursday and Friday tied as the least productive days with three percent each (Monday received 24 percent and Wednesday received 14 percent).

Now I don't know about you but Tuesday's not my best day of the week.  I'm still in a slump from Monday, which I find depressing.  By hump day, I'm starting to recover.  Thursday is a happy day because it's only one day away from Friday -- and the whole weekend stretching ahead -- no kids to pick up, no lunches to make.  And I can sleep till at least 5:30!
