IT professionals from all over the Information Technology industry can agree that there are universally wonderful and terrible ways to start the day at their IT jobs. Here are a 3 ways everyone from IT recruiters, to IT consultants, to IT managers can start their days.
- Get up right away. Sleeping beyond one snooze button isn’t doing your body any favors and actually makes it harder to wake up.
- Check and update your calendar and to do list. Making a plan for the day is helpful whether you’re one of the IT headhunters crowd or a programmer. Being organized and having goals for the day will help you accomplish more by COB.
- Glance at email- but don’t deal with it yet. If there are any glaring emergency emails, by all means, respond to them. Leave the rest for later and get going on your actual work. The more you respond to emails, the more you’ll invite. And the more emails you invite, the more distractions you’re creating for yourself. Start the day off with fewer emails and see how much more you can get done.
