Foundation first

One philosophy or heuristic I have been drawn to recently is to prioritize foundational activities.

Personal life: wash your face, work out, eat healthy and regularly, feed your cat, shower, do laundry, present yourself, journal, write, draw, etc. Do things that make you feel alive. This is actually the most important foundation.

Professional life: keep your finances in order and be an effective person. Focus on projects that move your OKRs forward or fit with org priorities. Work on projects that you want to be known for. Be a good collaborator and manage your time and energy well.

Relationships: focus on your partner, your self, your family, your friends. Avoid spending time on distractions that aren’t important.
