Pre and Post Work Routine

Today I learned that when I step into my daily routine, that I need to respect that space. Routine helps me transition from one activity to another. It helps me know what’s coming. It helps me prepare for the next day. And it helps me feel like I care and respect the work that I do before and after the routine. Does routine add value to your work?

Daily routines add value to our everyday lives in many ways. I do feel that routine adds value to our work. When we act intentionally to prepare and conclude our work session, that is working. Discipline and routine is what leads to mastery. Not talent, not perfection, not candy and coffee. Take all those things away but maintain your discipline, and you’re on you’re headed in the right direction. I heard on a business discussion it’s not the best baker or the most popular one. It’s the baker that withstands time. Sustainable practices like daily routine and discipline are two key strategies to avoiding burnout.

Now that I’ve accepted the value of my prework and post work routines, I’ll have a better idea of how to respect them.

Do you have a pre and/or post work routine? What is it? How long have you been doing it that way?

When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.

  1. Of course. Pre: 10 minutes of Thai Chi followed by the Five Tibetan Rights. (Listen to motivational speakers during workout)
    Post: deep stretches, 10 minutes of yoga followed by a few minutes of meditation and feeling at home in my body.
    Personal note: your writing has really grown and evolved to a point I’m starting to reverse engineer your methods. It’s such a joy to see people doing what they love. It’s really encouraging. So, thank you!👊
