How do you start your working day?

For me it's almost everyday the same:

  • Starting the computer
  • Preparing my breakfast (oats most of the time) and talk to my colleagues
  • Checking emails and the JIRA tasks I'm currently working on for updates
  • Plugin in my headphones and start coding :)

How do you start your working day? Do yo have any rituals?

I start my day with a glass of water. Then I make coffee. While having coffee, I do my DEV mod work. Then I do my client hunt, side projects, meetings, post memes, watch funny facebook/youtube videos. lol

Do you mean once I get into work?

  • Sort my stuff out. I.e. hang up jacket, plug phone in, etc.
  • Grab a coffee and fill my water bottle.
  • Eat my breakfast and drink coffee whilst getting up-to-date with, Twitter and Slack.
  • Once my coffee is done I'll collate everything from the day before in my head, write down a to-do (if I have a clear one), check emails/meetings and basically do some tidying before the scrum.
  • Waste my time doing the scrum
  • Start working
