Your Leadership Link
by Cullen S. Gibson

The Monday morning wakeup call is often pre-empted by anxiety, angst, apprehension, and ambivalence. These feelings usually begin on Sunday night and for some of us it begins on Friday at 5PM! We often share that the “weekend was too short” and “I just didn’t get enough time to finish that project…”.  The Monday Morning Margin is designed to help prepare you for those Monday’s in our lives. Someone has said that margin is “the gap between rest and exhaustion…it is the opposite of overload. Since we are all over-achievers, margin is not something that just happens…we have to fight for it.”
