Start every workday like this:

1. Reflect, pause and get comfortable.

2. Organize, prioritize and map out your day.

3. Visualize success but expect dis­tractions.

4. Reject negativity, but say no to anything that will take you off track, offering to engage later.

5. Greet your team and “read” their mood. Then help them; a service ap­­proach to leadership reduces stress and gives everyone a leg up, which increases job satisfaction.

6. Smile and laugh. Be grateful.

I like the suggestion to visualize success. Having a positive attitude about your work day will help you handle the situations that come. I also like how you said to have a service approach to leadership. The greatest bit of advice I learned from a past job is to never treat your team like they have to do everything you say. Be reasonable and don’t ask a job to be done if you yourself wouldn’t be willing to do that job.
