Things to do Daily in a Tech Workplace

August 6, 2015

Everyone has their own routine the moment they step into the workplace, and for some, their routine starts the moment they wake up. These busy routines are part and parcel of working in the IT and Digital Media industry. Regardless of what your routine is, here are some things that you might consider integrating into your daily routine. These things will help you stay in touch with old friends, help you look for new opportunities, and prepare you for future challenges that you may have to face.

Send an email to an old colleague

Never forget the colleagues that have helped get you where you are! Stay in contact with them. That old colleague may be able to find new opportunities for you or may be a life saver when you need them. This is all part of networking and staying in contact with your network of friends and colleagues is an important and valuable way to start the day. Who doesn’t like to wake up to an email in their inbox from an old friend?

Read something related to the Tech Industry

Success in the IT and Digital Media world requires staying up to date with all the trends. Skimming headlines and staying familiar with the ins-and-outs of the tech world is important to stay knowledgeable in the industry. Some of my favourite sites include ArsTechnica or Fastcompany.com, a site of IT news, reviews and analysis. With whatever your favourite news source is, skim it every single day. Staying up to date is crucial to remain competitive in a stiff, competitive industry.

Connect with your team members

Make an effort to contact each of your team members every day to get updates on their progress or to update them on your progress. This opens communication channels and encourages more communication between members of a team. This can help you spot issues early before they become more problematic. You can even go one step further with some praise or acknowledgement of your team members’ efforts.

Review your top three goals

Take some time each day to think about your top three goals. For example, ask yourself the goals you have for the day, for the week, and for the future. It is important to reevaluate your goals daily and prioritise which are more important for the near future and the far future. This helps you take stock of the challenges you will face and gain a better understanding of the things you need to do or want to accomplish.

Self-Appreciation

It is very easy to get lost in your work with a job in the IT and Digital Media industry. Take some time out of your busy day to just appreciate the things that you can do. For example, congratulate yourself on a small success, or reflect upon the qualities and skills you are most proud of. Some self-appreciation can go a long way to help you stay motivated and confident when the pressure mounts in a fast-paced IT workplace.

Here are 5 simple things to integrate into your daily routine. They do not have to take too much time, but can make positive differences to the people you work with and the way you feel about yourself. Consider trying some of these out!

An Irish cat living the dream in Sydney I don’t know what to tell ya! Even though I’m a long way from the homeland I’ve successfully built up 5 years of local industry knowledge specialising in emerging technologies. I have a strong JAVA and Ruby on Rails following in NSW and VIC. I also have extensive experience sourcing specialist software development teams for technology companies with highly transactional, high volume, data intensive environments. Let’s catch up for a pint, but do send me a message and we’ll see what happens!
