Ahh...so do I: my way of doing things is to go to my agenda after Emacs
starts (C-a a).  That opens all my agenda files.  With
org-agenda-file-regexp set to "\\`[^.].*\\.org\\'", all the files open
automatically.  You'll also have to set a default directory for your org files.

Perhaps you should put (org-agenda-goto-today) in your .emacs?  I'm
debating whether to do this right now as I write, however my tendency
has been to avoid starting any modes or opening any files, as it slows
things down, and when I want a quick startup, that's when I notice it.
