So with the year halfway gone, I’m taking a look at how I schedule my time. Semi-related, was charting some of my daily “workflows.” Here’s the first 15 work minutes of my day, which usually occurs ~6:30am PT. What do your first 15 minutes of work look like?
Get up and grab my phone:
1. Check Techmeme site to see read new headlines.
3. Open Twitter app and look through “Mentions” tab from whilst I slept. Respond/fav.
4. Open Mailbox app for email.
First pass – archive everything new that’s not important.
Second pass – open & respond to anything which can’t wait until I kiss my daughter (she’s either still sleeping or with my wife by this time). Usually it’s < 5 messages.
Third pass – read The Skimm newsletter to catch me up on top news stories from the past day.
5. While I’m on home wifi, update Reeder for my RSS feeds.
Disclosure: I’m an investor in Nuzzel and The Skimm via my venture fund Homebrew
