Morning Routine at Work

  • Plan to arrive at least 15 minutes before starting time, so that you have a planning period before you start your day.
  • Do not check your e-mail first thing; it puts you in a "reactive" mode — allowing others to set your priorities. Instead, set your own priorities by scheduling all your tasks for the day. You can see when you’re committed, so you’ll be less likely to allow interruptions. Schedule regular times for checking your e-mail, rather than allowing it to interrupt and drive the focus of your day.
  • Schedule big tasks first, before smaller, easier-to- accomplish items.
