Think about what you're going to say, then pick up the phone and place the call. Taking the first few days of the week step-by-step is the best way to survive the frantic -- albeit fun -- times. Tuesday and Wednesday, if you find yourself flirting with someone, make yourself clear. This is also crucial on Thursday or Friday, but the people you'll be dealing with will most likely be family members and the tenor of the conversation might be difficult and emotionally charged. A different kind of charge -- a blast of energy -- lifts your weekend to great heights.
