Sharing "Daily Routines" collectively
Buffer is a company whose teams are scattered across the globe. It can be difficult to work and achieve coordination when employees are in different parts of the world. That is why, to help its collaborators, the company collected its teams’ best practices to help all its members find the best habits to work remotely.
Team members shared how they personally structure their days to make them more productive and creative.
Start the day with a routine
Some examples of members’ routines:
- Joel (CEO) wakes up early to feel in control of where he directs his life.
- Kevan (Marketing Lead) starts his day with a task list prepared the day before.
- Alfred (content crafter) follows circadian rhythms.
Sort tasks according to energy
Members realized that it was easier to assess variations in energy rather than time to organize tasks.
For example, workers will reserve their afternoons for interviews, phone calls or emails when they know they have more energy to be creative in the mornings.
