I’m going to suggest something that, for some folks, is heresy.
Arrive at work 10 minutes early.
Aaaaayyeeeee!!! The sky is falling! The sun is exploding!
For some people arriving at work even an instant before they absolutely must is so far from thinkable that they believe doing it will bring about the end of civilization as we know it.
Others understand that 10 easy minutes before things get cranked up can lend focus to your day, put you on track to get some special projects done and..well…beat all the other folks to the coffee machine.
Think about it, 10 minutes could make the difference between you having some control over your day or feeling like you jumped on a moving treadmill.
Monday wouldn’t be a bad day to try it.
Have a great weekend.
