Curious to know the best time to tackle a project at work? According to this survey, your most productive day all starts off right at the beginning of the week!

While getting out of bed after a relaxing weekend may be one of the hardest things to do, it gives you all the motivation you need to tackle your week ahead.

According to this poll submitted on MoneyPenny.com, Monday mornings at 10:54am are the most productive time of the day. That is why many people suggest doing work meetings on Wednesdays instead of doing them right at the start of the week. The reason being, employees are their most efficient around that time.

According to entrepreneur Jeff Shore, disconnecting over the weekend is the best way to expect the most productive Monday work day: "When I take an entire weekend off, I am a beast on Monday morning [...] I do my most creative work on Mondays when my brain enjoyed a full weekend off from work. Get ready for a huge productivity boost."

When are you the most productive during the week?
