Rather than using words such as hectic, tiring, or even crazy to describe his schedule, Jack Dorsey prefers the word “disciplined.” Dorsey truly separates himself from the competition as he is currently the only CEO on the S&P 500 to manage two public companies, both of which each have over 8,000 employees across the globe. Now, you may be asking, what is his secret? While there is plenty of structure and theme to his weekly schedule, one aspect has remained strong. Jack Dorsey has worked from home for at least two days per week ever since he can remember. With companies transitioning to hybrid modalities, here are some tips directly from Dorsey himself, who has been working remotely for years: 

1. Meditation
Meditation is an essential aspect of Jack Dorsey’s daily routine, and for good reason. Meditation helps preserve the aging brain and work as antidepressants for depression and anxiety. Waking up at 6:15 AM, he begins every day with an hour-long meditation session before he even gets ready for work. To wrap up his day, he finishes with another meditation session. By starting and finishing days with meditation, you are able to reset your mind and be ready for the tasks that come in the near and distant future! 

2. A structured daily routine
One of the many highlights from Dorsey’s day-to-day routine surrounds ensuring his health is top tier. During his WFH days, primarily Tuesday and Thursday, he continues his mornings by giving himself space to read and write. While it is very tempting to simply roll out of bed at 8:59 AM and begin remote work at 9:00 AM, the main theme persists: Start your days early! Not only will has this been proven to help improve your productivity throughout the working day, but more importantly, it establishes a healthy lifestyle on a daily basis. 

3. Workout Schedule 
Whether working in the office or remotely, Dorsey ensures to incorporate a weekly training routine. On his WFH days, instead of walking five miles to work, he personally focused on a 7-minute high-intensity interval training routine. As he says, “the thing I love about the 7-minute workout is I never have an excuse. I don’t have a personal trainer. I don’t go to a gym.” The moral of the story is to find what works for you and stick to it! Similar to building your personalized home office, everyone prefers different training routines, but one concept remains consistent: Stay Active, especially when working remotely! 

With these tips, we can all collectively work together to learn from those who have been doing this for years! Remaining disciplined in an era where many distractions can arise, especially during WFH, is key to overall success.
