Monday Morning

Monday morning.

The beginning of a new week. A fresh start.

Well-rested, with enough sleep and an empowering breakfast behind you, you get to the office. Your desk is still empty, as is the e-mail inbox. Slowly and with a relaxed pace, you start yet again from zero. Another week, with only 37 and a half hours of work to put in.

Not so for the self-employed and freelancers among us.

This is how my desk looked this Monday morning. A tangled mass of unfinished jobs. A to-do list from last weekend, hardly tackled at all. Notes which only make sense again after re-reading them several times. Thousands of unanswered e-mails. Reminders of past trips to write about and of future travel to be planned. And more and more issues pile up every day.

About Andreas Moser

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a journalist, a spy or a hobo.

  2. I start every Monday morning with gathering the mess of last week. Organizing papers, notes, maps, books..Three hours later, it looks like yours…

    • These are the precious three hours which I sleep longer on Monday morning.

      It’s good that I move once or twice every year. This way, I have to throw away a lot of the old stuff at least.
