Tuesday

 Most productive day of the working week

That is what Tuesday is often seen as, according to research from ‘AccountEmps‘. Monday and Tuesday are the two most productive days of the week for employees. 39% of Human Resource Managers think employees get the most work done on Tuesdays, while 24% believe productivity peaks on Mondays. 

That is what statistics say, but even taking statistics out of the equation, many will sincerely believe that Tuesday is the most productive day of the week. The working week (except Arab world countries) seems to officially start on Monday but realistically it doesn’t come alive until Tuesday, employees brain cells start to wake up from the weekends nap.

Why cant employees just be normal and switch on from Monday?

I believe it is a psychological issue that we humans struggle with, the weekend events is like a hanging burden over us that damages our mentality on Monday morning, in other words Monday morning comes too soon for the majority of us which is not as bad as it seems considering once Tuesday comes around 99% of the world are already in full swing with their duties, a buzz finally comes over us to notice the week has started. Tuesday is that kind of day where targets are beginning to take shape and things feel normal, why? Because you are settling into the rhythm again, the normality of how your body reacts to routine.

How important are Tuesdays?

If momentum means anything to you, then Tuesdays should also signify a lot to your achievements. Tuesday for a number of professional workers in an specific industry will tell you, it is the day where they pick up steam, suddenly things become competitive again whereas Monday you couldn’t be bothered to compete with your colleagues.

We all know 5 days a week, Monday to Friday goes lightning fast. So really, we should recognise the chances to get the ball rolling to ensure we aren’t slumping past the finish line on Friday afternoon, but comfortably packing our stuff up with ease getting ready for a relaxing weekend. Tuesday is that day where it is important to start your engine at work.

‘Wednesday’ coming soon 🙂

Can City based Tourism like Paris, London and Rome, match the sunny Island Resorts?

brand perceptions

Can it? Let me know your choice, also comment to share with me a more detailed opinion:

Looking at it and being quick to answer, it would seem to be a mismatch. We all want the sunshine, the luxury way of living naturally, but properly giving it some thought the argument can be fought by the ‘City-based’ tourists.

Can this top floor of the Eiffel Tower view gain more tourists than a Resort?

Can this top section of the Eiffel Tower view gain more tourists than a Resort?

Or the famous Notre Dame Church attract more visitors than sunny skies and water parks?

Or the famous Notre Dame Church of Paris attract more visitors than crystal Oceans and water parks?

The annual tourism figures would suggest it can’t, France of course topping the pile being the most visited country in the world (sourcesee previous post).  However the European countries leading the charge to get greater tourism figures, I believe would be down to the financial summary of it. It is cheaper to spend weekends and breaks in Europe than it is to take a weekend in the Maldives. Therefore sparking the question:

If you were granted a free holiday, to either Europe or an Ocean Resort which one would you pick?

The distance and price can sometimes falter our plans to visit the top destinations abroad such as Mauritius

Although it’s a shame, we can’t slam down the finest destinations in Europe just because they don’t have a beach and it isn’t sunshine everyday. A key to travelling and touring the unknown wonders of the world is seeing the perfection everywhere we go, it will all be different. Japan won’t possess the same features as Grenada, the two countries are completely trying to achieve different targets with their tourism. Atmosphere and culture I identified as the two factors that make holidays and travels so unique, getting a whole new feeling being somewhere that wasn’t like the last.

What do the results say in reality?

It’s straight forward to see, the two aren’t really in any competition amongst themselves, whereas Fiji may want to out sell the Solomon Islands when summer comes around. Myself and my team noticed no friction of any sort at the World Travel Market between the Tropical Resorts and the City Tour excursions. Being in the industry everyday I do believe Tourism Boards should be as ambitious as possible.

By this I mean for example the Ugandan companies can accept, we may not have Disney Land and the Eiffel Tower but we have plenty of Safaris covering acres of land, that are home to Lions, some of the most rare birds, Gorillas and the list obviously goes on. It’s all about embracing USP’s a term that means a ‘Unique Selling Point’, there are enough audiences around and everybody likes a bit of something that one country may provide, that another doesn’t.

It’s the Marketing Agencies and Marketing directors of companies that have to make that decision improve every year. In simpler terms, Germany, India, Spain, Jamaica, Turkey and the other 191 destinations in the world all have holidays to offer, pick one randomly out of a hat and book it, it will be as good as any other place!
