Discussion on: What do you do within the first 30 minutes of starting your work day?

My routine when I first start my workday is:

  • Fresh cup of coffee or tea.
  • Journal to understand my intentions for today.
  • Todo list for the work features.
  • Mon, Wed, Fri - read through emails. JIRA ticket cleanups. Kind of nothing tasks that make me feel productive.
  • Tue, Thur - I dive straight into focused work. Quit slack, headphones on.

Generally, this is pretty consistent. It's only on days my dog wakes me up and I can't go back to sleep where everything falls apart. Didn't realize how important sleep was until I got older.
