After arriving at work, your number one priority is picking your desk. If you can get a standing desk, get one. Being at higher ground is a position of power. This advantage is especially important in open-office environments. People need to look up to you — even if only literally. Always pick a corner desk when available, and position it with your back to the corner so you are overlooking your coworkers. Angle your monitors so that one is only visible by you. Needless to say, this is your dedicated Facebook monitor. For your other monitor, keep code and a terminal on full display at all times.
