What days of the week are the most productive?

I find I get very little work done on Mondays and Fridays. On Mondays I’m answering e-mail and messages that built up over the weekend, and on Fridays I watch the clock all day.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are the opposite. I program, work on customer issues, coordinate projects, etc. sometimes until late in the evening. I get more done on these two days than I would in twice as many Mondays and Fridays.

Wednesdays also seem to be very productive for me, but in a social way. I schedule most of my meetings on Wednesday for two reasons:

  1. I’m already out for my weekly BNI meeting,
  2. I find potential clients more agreeable and ready to commit in the middle of the week.

No real point to this post other than what I’ve written. It made for a good discussion with a colleague earlier today, so I thought I’d write it up.
