#2 (Start Your Workday with Code) is interesting. I do that sometimes incidentally, but now I’ll try that intentionally. Thanks for the idea!

I know the importance of #5 (Share What You’ve Learned Often to Reinforce Your Knowledge) both from personal experience and teaching high school students, but I don’t have many opportunities to practice it in my current role. Perhaps just talking out loud about what I learned in the car on the way home would serve some of that purpose. The audible aspect would be important, as it forces one to turn abstract impressions into concrete words. Writing documentation can help with that, too.
