Busy professionals fall into new workday rhythms in 2019.

We all have our habits and routines. We take comfort in them and, at some point, we become frustrated by them because of how much we rely on those patterns. We need our morning coffee. We need the kids to be out the door and ready by a certain time. We need to let the dog out. We need to make sure the trash is by the curb on Wednesday mornings. We need our second pot of coffee! And that combination of comfort and irritation tend to live together because well, it’s what we do as normal people just trying to live and work and function. Breaking our routines has the potential of truly messing up our day – until the new routine replaces the old.

We had to learn an entirely new publishing platform and figure out how this would change our pattern of publishing daily website and weekly print stories, and figuring out all of those other boring behind-the-scenes details. It was a month of keeping an old habit, while learning a new one. It felt like showering and changing a flat tire at the same time.
