Remember when you used to have a period at the beginning of every day to think about your schedule, catch up with friends, maybe knock out a few tasks? It was called home room, and it went away after high school.
This article suggests the following to do in the first hour of your work day:
1. Don't read Email!
2. Take stock of what you are grateful for, and visualize what you want.
3. Do the hardest thing on your To-Do List. The thing you hate.
4. Choose your Frog... read this to find out what it is.
5. Perform acts of customer/client service.
The first one, Don't Read Your Email is probably the hardest, and best advice. Next, Do the hard stuff first. Love this, Ken
