In case you haven't heard, there's a certain holiday tomorrow that may throw a bit of a kink into your week's productivity. St. Patrick's day is a blast whether or not you're Irish! But all that wearing 'o the green on Tuesday followed by a green beer or two Tuesday night may lead to a "wobbly Wednesday"!
So plan today for a productive start to the week that will counterbalance against a decline towards the week's end. Use today to power through items on your "to do" list, work on projects that require major focus, and conduct important face to face meetings or telephone conversations where top notch communication skills are in order.
Plan for the fact that you or some of your colleagues may be out late Tuesday night and may not be bringing their "A" games Wednesday morning. Use Wednesday as a "buffer" day, avoiding big plans in case you're tired (or worse...).
And just because I'm Irish Catholic and love this holiday, here are a few fun links to help you enjoy St. Patrick's Day in style:

I'll be out on Tuesday night, listening to my boys play traditional Irish tunes at our favorite pub and possibly sipping on a Black and Tan. How do you plan to celebrate? How is your schedule impacted by mid week holidays such as this one that may cause distraction or impact productivity?
