I am very big into family, and I have a big family as well. 5 brothers and sisters (I'm the 5th of 6). 13 nieces and nephews (it's about to be 14 because yet another one is due in October!). 5 great-nephews & 5 great-nieces. And no, with that many family members, I do not keep up with birthdays very well. Even with a master list on my fridge.
I'm also married. My husband and I got married here in San Antonio at the historic Sheraton Gunter Hotel downtown. And we are the proud parents of a 9 year old Alaskan Husky named Moo and three 1 year old kittens, Wicket, Willow, and Winter.
Like all Texas moms, I made my kid pose in the bluebonnets.
You've probably got a routine down for how you start work each day. But if it seems like you're not organized enough, or you're always struggling to get things done by the end of the day, this list might help. According to "Forbes", these are the first things you should do when you get to work each day.
Get There on Time. It's not just because being late makes you look bad. It's also because not being there on time can throw off your whole day. You probably noticed that if you show up 10 or 15 minutes early, it usually makes the whole day LESS stressful. And if you show up late, it's the opposite.
Give Yourself Five Minutes to Settle In. Don't just dive into a project or start making phone calls. Try to start your day with something less stressful, like organizing your desk or listening to your voicemail.
Say Hello to People. Even if you're not much of a morning person, it shows that you're at least making an effort. And it's even more important if you're the boss. One of the biggest pet peeves for employees is when their immediate supervisor gets to work and doesn't acknowledge them.
