Morning Routines at Work

https://openclipart.org/detail/169719/checklist

 

This week we’ve talked about morning routines and adding “fun stuff” not only to lighten up the mood of doing them but also to give ourselves satisfaction and joy.

Just for us.

Just because.

What about when you arrive at work, though? Do you use the energy and the self confidence gained from your morning routine at home to slingshot you into a productive and effective day at work?  Do you let your co-workers’ drama or the latest panicked directive from your boss derail and dissipate all you gained?

Experts state–and researchers have confirmed–that the first few hours are the most productive. Successful people have proven this time and time again.  It’s routine for them to get into the office by 6 or 7 in the morning and they tackle the worst and toughest problems first.  They’re at their freshest and there are few distractions and interruptions so they can put the full force of their mind and talents to the tasks.

If you aren’t already “hitting the ground running” when you arrive at work, what can you do to alter your routine so that you are productive right off the bat? Perhaps you need to park in a different part of the lot so that you don’t walk in with Moaning Martin.  Perhaps you can bring in your own coffee so that you don’t stand at the company coffee pot and listen to Cranky Cathy and Downer Doug.

Give your morning routine at work some thought. Take time to work out a routine for yourself.  Don’t worry or become discouraged if you have to tweak things.  Accept it as a normal and natural process of honing the routine until you get something that works for you.

You can do it!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,
