New Job? Make Your Bed before Work
Some great advice for making a new start from business writer and branding expert Chris Dessi, writing a feature for Inc.com. Some of Dessi's advice is pretty common and even obvious. But I really enjoyed his first bit: Make your bed.
During his 2014 commencement address at the University of Texas, Admiral William McRaven talked about why it's so important to make your bed every morning. Admiral McRaven thinks it's a great way to start the day because it represents the accomplishment of the first task of the day, and it will make you feel good and will lead you to accomplishing other tasks.
