You usually like to kick off the week with a big burst of productivity, but don’t take any risky chances or introduce new projects this Monday or Tuesday. As difficult as it might sound for a captain of industry like you, the wisest course of action is probably inaction. Fortunately, the environment for innovation should clear up by midweek. Wednesday and Thursday are both good days for spontaneous brainstorming, inspired e-mails, and striking out on new paths. Any initiative you show will be rewarded. On Friday, be assertive but polite. You might need to stand up for your projects or your team.
