What's the article about?
Naomi shares what her daily routine looks like. This includes when her day starts, how she prepares for work and prioritizes properly her tasks, when a typical workday ends, how she prepares for the next day, and what the best advice she has received is.
Here are some of our favorite quotes:
- "I prioritise my day’s work based on impact. Items that are of high significance and carry a high-level impact on the company will be prioritised first. I try not to overplan to have space for feedback or spontaneous challenges."
- "My kids, dog, cat, and horse force me to switch off. They request my undivided attention when I am with them. I like to go into nature with them whenever I can find the time. I also meditate and teach yoga lessons. This helps me to change my perspective, stimulates creativity, new thoughts, ideas and helps me to solve work challenges."
- "...(Give) yourself the space to take a break regardless of deadlines. After a focus break of even 30 minutes, you will be able to work faster and more efficiently. The key to this is being honest with yourself and finding the right time for a break. In essence, change your focus for a moment and then get back to the task."
