What’s the first thing you do when you sit down at a computer?

January 18, 2012

One of our members. Alastair Banks of Optix Solutions, shared this on Twitter last week, found on Seth Godin’s blog.

The First thing you do at your computer: 

Let me guess: check the incoming. Check email or traffic stats or messages from your boss. Check the tweets you follow or the FB status of friends.

You’ve just surrendered not only a block of time but your freshest, best chance to start something new.

If you’re a tech company or a marketer, your goal is to be the first thing people do when they start their day. If you’re an artist, a leader or someone seeking to make a difference, the first thing you do should be to lay tracks to accomplish your goals, not to hear how others have reacted/responded/insisted to what happened yesterday.
