The Magic Hour: 11:33 Tuesday


Forget about Ruby Tuesday -- it should probably be called Diamond, Gold or even Platinum Tuesday, as far as your boss is concerned. A recent study conducted by a British research firm shows that the most productive time of the week for workers is at exactly 11:33 a.m. Tuesday.

It makes perfect sense: Mondays are spent recovering from the weekend, catching up, and organizing the week to come. By Tuesday you're ready to dig in and get things done, before you start losing steam. Believe it or not, the majority of the workers surveyed said that energy and enthusiasm begin to flag as soon as Wednesday.
