Having coffee and reading a book before going to the office had been my morning ritual when I worked in Japan. One of the reasons is to leave a safety margin. Another reason is that a day starting with work and ending with work sucks; I want to start a day with something meaningful event though it is only a little more than a few minutes. Now I have worked for one week in Canada, and this is my morning ritual again.
Now I read Innovation and Entrepreneurship by Peter Drucker, dreaming that I will make it happen in the future. The current job is not creative at all, and it is quite difficult to avoid getting discouraged without dreaming.
