This weekend, my wife and I realized that if one of us got up early and went jogging with our dog for 20 minutes we’d be hitting a new high in productivity. For one our dog (a husky/yellow lab mix) gets much needed exercise. That exercise will hopefully prevent him from getting restless during the day while we are at work (something that happens from time to time). The other half of the productivity comes from the exercise that we get. The person who doesn’t walk the dog in the morning gets and early trip to work in an effort to get home early for another dog jog.
Today I’m the one getting to work early. Traffic was a breeze at 7AM (yes it’s not the norm. I’ve found that Silicon Valley generally has later sleepers). The traffic was so good that I got into work only to find locked doors at 7:30. No one was around to let me in. That wouldn’t be a problem if I wasn’t the only person at work without a key. I had never made it a priority to get one since it was only twice previously in months and months that I was here before or after hours. Let’s hope this is just a blip in the overall plan. Something tells me that’s going to be the easy part and jogging the mile and a half in the morning is going to be a little more difficult.
