Delegate crunching the numbers or reassessing the budget to someone else at the beginning of the week; you're much better suited to creative, big-picture work. Understanding your field on a deeper level gets you fired up on wednesday or thursday, so sign up for a class or a conference. And don't neglect resources right in front of you: picking your boss' brain shows respect for their opinions and may even change yours. At week's end, you're in danger of getting tangled up in some bureaucracy. Knowing which red tape you can safely cut will save you lots of time.
