Do you have a daily routine when you first turn on the laptop or PC? You know when you first make that cup of coffee while the PC is booting up and then have that pen and paper handy to jot down today’s to do list? I do not work from home but have a routine each time I get online when at home. I’m not going to talk about my routine at work because it’s different almost everyday as it’s not a at home job and I have more than one boss to deal with. Although I do work on the same account 5 days a week for the past 6 years. I’m always looking for volunteer short term projects to jump on to break things up and learn something new.
Should you break up your routine once and awhile?
Everyday I’m like a broken record. Once that laptop is logged in, I open up my email and 2 internet browsers to get me started for a bit. I do have more open because I’m always reading blog posts or spying on my friends on Facebook. Sometimes it’s unhealthy to do the same thing over and over each day 5 to 7 days a week if you are one of the lucky folks who work from home. My typical weekend online schedule is different because I do more things that involve not being home. My dad recently 2 weeks ago hired me as his landscaper so I have a second job on the weekend. I need to do a good job because it would stink to get fired by your own dad.
Do you think it’s healthy to be predictable online?
I’m sure if you have kids, they know what you do online each day so they can try to plan to do bad things while they have a few minutes or hours of no momma or dadda over their shoulder. I’m trying to change-up my online routine when I get online each day. Maybe check my feeder after I get done with my emails or write a future blog post for later in the week. Right now, before I log off for the night, I would write a blog post. This sometimes isn’t good because I’m usually dead tired and the really good idea’s or words just isn’t there. Also the coffee is out and I can’t function without coffee.
Don’t be afraid to shakeup your daily routine’s schedule a few days a week. Don’t be predictable and it’s good to do things out-of-order once and awhile. Wouldn’t you get bored doing the same thing over and over everyday?
FYI, I just wrote this blog post before visiting the V7N Forum. Usually in a few more hours I would try to write a blog post. I’m not the greatest writer in the world but keep it real and raw.
Do you have a routine each morning/day? Do you break things up a little once and awhile to keep yourself on your toes? I do hope that you know that your kids might be onto your typical online schedule when they not in school. Catch them off guard one morning instead of turning on the laptop to check your email.
