Remote Workers Daily Routine

Since starting to work from home, I've made a purposeful effort to put good practices into place. I view working from home as a privilege, not a right, and I need to make the most of it if I am to be successful and integrate it as part of a successful business model. One of those good practices is a schedule. It's a work in progress, but here is mine so far.


Wake up. Leave the alarm at least ten feet from the bed, in the direction of the bathroom, so I have to get up and am not tempted to fall back in bed


Out the door to go on a walk with our Golden Retriever, Oliver. Total distance is 1.5 miles and takes about 30 min


Back to the house, feed the dog, get a bowl of cereal, sit down to ready my Bible and journal


Do a 10 minute circuit: 20 pushups, 20 leg lifts, 20 squats/calf raises x 3


In the shower, get dressed and ready for the day


Go into office, start working on most important thing I have to do that day


Stand and stretch


Refill water jug. Use the biggest I can find


Check email. Use the Eisenhower Principle (below)


Stand up meeting with team


Eat lunch


Refill water


Stand and stretch, get afternoon snack


Check email. Use the Eisenhower Principle


Quit work for the day. Close the door to office. Don't go back in until next day. Don't bring laptop out
