9位高管现身说法:想成功,从“早”做起

Business Insider 2017年10月08日

你是不是也在想办法给一天的工作开个好头?何不听听成功的企业高管怎么说。

你是不是也在想办法给一天的工作开个好头?何不听听成功的企业高管怎么说。

我们咨询了九位企业首席执行官,他们的工作场所或者住地都在纽约市。我们问他们,每天从早上起床到步入办公室这段时间如何度过。有人冥想,有人锻炼身体,大部分人都会查看电邮。

以下是最繁忙的人士如何安排早晨,日复一日争取成功。

Slice创始人兼首席执行官伊利尔·塞拉:和哥哥交流想法

Slice是一款让方便用户订购本地披萨的移动应用。

我属于早起的人,通常早上5点半就醒了,最迟不超过6点。

醒来以后五到十分钟,我就会迅速抓起手机,查看公司业务有何进展。Slice是一家一周七天全天营业的公司,业务覆盖全球各时区。在我睡觉的时候,一直都有客户下单买披萨。我醒来总是很兴奋,想看看睡觉期间公司业绩增长了多少。

我住在纽约史丹顿岛,办公室在曼哈顿。每天我会跟双胞胎哥哥一起出发去公司上班。早上6点40分以前,我会让哥哥在外面等我,然后一起开车走。

从住地到公司有35到45分钟车程。我通常在路上查看电邮,读一些新闻,一边跟哥哥聊天。他也开了家公司,所以有时遇到问题他能帮着出出主意。我们私下里也在竞争,看当天谁工作更高效更成功。

Dia&Co创始人兼首席执行官纳迪娅·布加瓦:清理思绪、迅速穿戴整齐

Dia&Co为穿14码以上大码服装的女性提供服装定制服务。

我一直坚持早起。如果要去上健身课,我会在早上6点以前起来,如果没课,可能6点半起。

最近我开始用一款冥想应用Headspace。每天一起床,我前十分钟都会用这款应用。十分钟的冥想能帮助我集中精神,理清思绪,不用再想没什么价值的东西。

每周有两三天我早上会上健身课,基本都是动感单车课程。

我在投资银行做初级员工时学到最有用的一条经验就是:早上要迅速穿戴整齐。我一般在15分钟内能搞定。

因为住处离办公室非常近,我总是步行上班。很多人刚起床的时候我已经出了家门,这在早晨的纽约其实挺难得的,所以我总是斗志满满,心情也很好。我经常8点不到就在办公室了。

Wheels Up创始人兼首席执行官肯尼·迪希特:健身、阅读和充电同步进行

Wheels Up是一家会员制的私人飞行服务公司。

我大概在早上5点到5点半起床。我有三部设备,起来以后会用来查看电邮、短信,以及其他联络工具。

接着我会在家里和私人教练碰头。6点到6点45分,他会帮我做伸展运动,我利用这段时间看新闻。

6点45分到7点半,我会做20分钟有氧,20分钟无氧运动。健身的时候,我会喝有机品牌Mother Earth的浓缩果汁,也会喝杯黑咖啡。

7点半我去淋浴,边洗边看美国财经频道CNBC的新闻节目Squawk Box。我浴室里装着电视,所以可以把音量调大,隔着淋浴房的门也能听清新闻。洗完澡擦干身体的时候,我也会瞟一眼体育频道ESPN的SportsCenter。

HighTower创始人兼首席执行官艾略特·威斯布鲁斯:列出全天工作目标

HighTower是一家金融服务公司,为高净值人士和机构客户服务。

我早上大概4点或者4点半起床,先煮咖啡,整理思绪,主要是想想手头工作的进展情况,当天有什么计划,有哪些在进行中。我会调整当天事项的处理顺序,根据孩子、家人和个人责任列出先后。

不久以前,我找到一个名叫Momentum的小工具,可以帮助排列优先事项的小工具。Momentum是谷歌浏览器Chrome的一款插件,最大的好处是会强制要求设定每天的目标。

通常在喝第一杯咖啡的时候,我会仔细思考,写下当天的目标,以及哪些要重点做。这种方法确实能让我把握好自己,想清楚哪些比较重要,哪些是可以先放一放的。

当然,我每天早上都会锻炼身体。

威斯布鲁斯常驻芝加哥,但40%时间会在纽约的办公室。

Nomad Health联合创始人兼首席执行官阿列克西·纳齐姆:上班途中脑中勾勒计划

Nomad Health是一家医疗服务网站,帮助患者联系在医疗保健系统工作的自由职业临床医生。

我7点醒来,首先了解新闻,在网上读一些电子版的报纸——《纽约时报》、《华尔街日报》。我会读七八份日报精选。

接下来,我会把电邮迅速过一遍,通过Nomad平台跟进公司业务,了解隔夜发生了什么事。

然后我会洗个澡,吃些早餐,步行去办公室。走过去只需要15到20分钟,路上我会想些事情,努力想清楚这一天里希望完成哪些工作。每天早上,我们公司都要开一场全员会议,所以我会先思考有什么想和整个团队分享。

DB+Co创始人兼首席执行官德布勒·贝德纳-克拉克:日出时起床

DB+Co是一家提供职业咨询和培训领导能力的公司。

我是习惯早起的人。只要阳光照到卧室的窗户上我就起床。但我总是给自己设个闹钟,最迟设到7点,只是以防万一。

起床以后第一件事是查收件箱,确保没出现客户有重要需求,提出问题或者联系不到我。身为纽约人当然应该读读新闻,我会看看头条报道,比如《纽约时报》和《纽约邮报》最热门的消息。每天起床前半小时,我会读新闻订阅平台theSkimm的资讯。

接下来我会吃早饭,通常是老三样:柠檬水、肉桂葡萄干土司和拿铁咖啡。趁着吃早餐,我会查看一些新花样的东西,可能去图片分享类社交网站Pinterest上转转,可能看一些设计方面的内容,也可能是职场的要诀和妙招。

有时我会锻炼,有时不会,具体看身体感觉怎样。我可能去中央公园跑步,也可能和丈夫一起散步。有时我们在会在家做瑜伽,或者自己做普拉提。

Troops联合创始人兼首席执行官丹·瑞奇:了解时事

Troops为销售人员开发企业聊天软件Slack平台的机器人。

一般来说我都会清早6点到7点半醒,具体时间前一晚睡得如何。

起床以后,我穿好衣服直接去健身房,然后写下三件感恩的事。

上班路上我会读些东西。我喜欢读两种内容,一是新闻,我会读前一天收藏的《华尔街日报》文章,还有同事、投资者和朋友分享的文章。我也读和公司业务有关的内容。

我搭地铁,4-5-6号线一起。一方面,我喜欢上班路程不长,另一方面觉得要是通勤时间多些就能多享受一会独处的时间,可以读点文章,听听音乐。

我尽量每天早晨8点半以前到办公室。

Amino Apps联合创始人兼首席执行官本·安德森:和国外联系沟通

Amino Apps利用应用创造不同话题的社群。

我的一天通常从午夜开始。作为公司的首席执行官,大脑仿佛总在运转停不下来,不管碰到什么,脑子都会立刻开始想工作,想入睡总得多花一些时间。

第二天真正醒来的时候是8点,我一般躺在床上查看电邮和工作日程,看看当天有什么安排。我们在上海有办公室,团队一半成员都在上海。所以我会回复睡觉时错过的讯息。

然后我去洗澡,带着早餐——酸奶和蛋白质奶昔去办公室。

办公室步行就能到,但我更喜欢骑电动滑板。每次考虑办公室往哪搬的时候,一个重要标准就是得在我骑电动滑板车通勤范围以内。

Cadre联合创始人兼首席执行官瑞恩·威廉姆斯:促进血液循环

Cadre是一家线上房地产交易平台,促成获准卖家与高净值买家交易。

我每天清晨6点到7点醒来。醒过来第一件事是关上闹钟,免得不停地响。然后我就起床洗澡。

洗完澡,我会读一读新闻了解世界大事。我通常会浏览《华尔街日报》和《经济学人》,有时会看一些行业相关的刊物。

最近我的肩膀做了手术,只要肩膀一恢复我就会继续每天晨跑。现在我早上会做一些轻度的有氧运动,促进血液循环。

我发现早起对一天的工作很有好处,清早是我精力最集中的时候,所以我一般会尽量8点半以前赶到办公室。(财富中文网)

If you're looking for ideas about how to jump-start your workday, who better to consult than a bunch of successful CEOs?

We asked nine such executives, all of whom live or work in New York City, how they spend the time between waking up and showing up at the office. Some meditate, some work out, and most check email.

Here's how some of the busiest people you'll meet set themselves up for success daily.

Ilir Sela, the founder and CEO of Slice, bounces ideas off his brother.

Slice is a mobile app that lets you order from local pizzerias.

I'm an early bird, so I'm typically awake by 5:30 a.m., or at the latest 6.

Within the first five or 10 minutes of waking up, I'll jump right to my phone and check to see how things are going with the business. Slice is a 24/7 operation and we cover all different time zones — there are people ordering pizza at all times of the night. I'm always excited to wake up and check on how things went while I was sleeping.

I live on Staten Island, and my office is in Manhattan. I commute in on a regular basis with my twin brother. Before 6:40 a.m., I'll have my brother waiting outside for me, and we drive in together.

It takes 35 to 45 minutes to drive in. That's when I'm usually checking all my email, reading some of the news, and at the same time chatting with my twin brother. He's a business owner himself, so he helps me out with some of the challenges that we're facing and vice versa. We're secretly in this competition to see who's going to find a way to be more successful that day.

Nadia Boujarwah, the cofounder and CEO of Dia&Co, clears her head and speed-dresses.

Dia&Co is a clothing subscription service for women who wear size 14 and up.

I've always been an early riser. If I'm going to an exercise class, I'm up by 6 a.m. If not, maybe 6:30.

I recently started using the meditation app Headspace. I use it for 10 minutes first thing in the morning. Carving out that time to help me get centered and clear my mind has proven to be incredibly valuable.

Two or three times a week I'll start my day with an exercise class. It's almost always spin classes.

Something I picked up while I was low on the totem pole in investment banking is getting ready very quickly in the morning. I'm usually ready in less than 15 minutes.

I live very close to the office, so I always walk to work. There's something special about New York City in the morning — being out and about while everyone's just starting their day has an energy that I really enjoy. I'm usually at the office by 8.

Kenny Dichter, the founder and CEO of Wheels Up, combines exercise, reading, and fueling up.

Wheels Up is a membership-based private aviation company.

I wake up somewhere between 5 and 5:30 a.m. I have three devices, and I check all three devices for email and for texts and for any sort of communication.

Then I have my trainer meet me at my house, and he stretches me from 6 to 6:45 while I'm reading the newspaper.

From 6:45 to 7:30, I'm trying to do 20 minutes of cardio and 20 minutes of anaerobic exercise. All the while, I'm drinking a Juice Press Mother Earth. I'm also drinking a black coffee at the same time.

At 7:30, I shower. While I'm showering, I turn on CNBC's "Squawk Box." I have the TV on in my bathroom, so I turn the volume way up, and I'm listening through the shower door. I also might sneak in a little bit of ESPN's "SportsCenter" while I'm drying off.

Elliot Weissbluth, the founder and CEO of HighTower, outlines his goals for the day.

HighTower is a financial-services firm that works with high-net-worth people and institutional clients.

I get up around 4 or 4:30 a.m. I make coffee and collect my head — where I am, what the plan is for the day, the things that are going on. I do a reshuffle of priorities of what's important for that day vis-a-vis the kids, family, my obligations.

One of the things that helps is this little tool I found a while ago called Momentum. It's a Chrome plugin. The best part of this tool is that it asks you to set an intention for the day.

I'm pretty deliberate — usually in the middle of my first cup of coffee, I write out what my intention for the day is and what my focus is, and that really allows me to anchor myself in terms of what's going to be important for that day and what I'm going to push off to the side.

There's always a workout early in the morning as well.

Weissbluth is based in Chicago but spends about 40% of his time in New York City, where HighTower has offices.

Alexi Nazem, the cofounder and CEO of Nomad Health, uses his commute to mentally plan ahead.

Nomad Health is a site that helps connect freelance clinicians to work in healthcare systems.

I wake up at 7 a.m. I try to catch up on the news. I'll reach a bunch of newspapers online — The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal. I read seven or eight daily digests.

Then I'll try to whip through some emails and things that happened overnight through the Nomad platform.

I'll take a shower, grab some breakfast, and walk up to the office. It's a 15- to 20-minute walk, and I'm really just lost in my thoughts and trying to organize what I really want to accomplish during the day. Every morning we have an all-hands meeting, so I think about what I want to share with the team.

Debra Bednar-Clark, the founder and CEO of DB+Co, wakes up with the sun.

DB+Co is a career and leadership coaching firm.

I'm a total morning person. I like to get up whenever the sunlight hits my bedroom window. But I always set my alarm for at least 7 a.m., just in case.

The first thing I do is I check my inbox, just to make sure that there aren't any major needs or questions or outreach from clients. Then I scan the news. I read the top news, like the most popular for The New York Times and The New York Post, since I'm a New Yorker. I read theSkimm within the first 30 minutes of every day.

Then I'll have breakfast, which is always the same thing: lemon water, cinnamon-raisin toast, and a latte. Over breakfast, that's my time for creative exploration. It might be looking at Pinterest. It could be things about design. It could be career tips and tricks.

Some days I work out, some days I don't. It's just how my body feels. I'll either do a run in Central Park, or my husband and I will do a walk. Sometimes we'll do yoga at home, or I'll do Pilates.

Dan Reich, the cofounder and CEO of Troops, catches up on current events.

Troops creates Slackbots for sales teams.

I wake up anywhere between 6 and 7:30 a.m., depending on what my night was like the night before.

On mornings where I work out, I get up and I go straight to the gym. Then I write down three things I'm grateful for.

I read on the way to the office. I like to read two pieces of content. First is the news — I'll read The Wall Street Journal, articles that I saved throughout the previous day, and articles that colleagues, investors, and friends share with me. I'll also read content related to our business.

I take the subway — the 4-5-6 lines. On the one hand, I love that it's a relatively short commute. But on the other hand, it's great to be locked up for a while because you get time to yourself to do nothing other than read or listen to music.

I try to be in the office before 8:30 a.m.

Ben Anderson, the cofounder and CEO of Amino Apps, does some international correspondence.

Amino Apps uses apps to create communities around different topics.

It all starts in the middle of the night. As a CEO, your mind is always going, so if anything stirs me, my mind goes directly to work, and it takes me some time to get back to sleep.

When I wake up for real, at 8 a.m., I usually check my email from bed and check my schedule to see what I have going on that day. We have an office in Shanghai, so half my team is based there. I'll respond to all the messages I missed while I was sleeping.

I shower and take my breakfast with me — yogurt and a protein shake — and head off to the office.

Our office is walking distance for me, but I tend to ride my electric skateboard. When we were deciding where to move our office, one of the criteria was that it's in range of my electric skateboard.

Ryan Williams, the cofounder and CEO of Cadre, gets his blood flowing.

Cadre is an online real-estate marketplacethat connects approved sellers and high-wealth people.

I wake up between 6 and 7 a.m. The first thing I do is make sure my alarm's turned off so it doesn't keep ringing. Then I jump into the shower.

After that, I'll start reading and seeing what's happening in the world. I'll generally scan The Journal and The Economist. Sometimes I look at the industry-relevant publications.

I had shoulder surgery recently, but when I get my shoulder back in action I'll get back into going for my runs in the morning. Right now I do some light cardio to get my blood flowing.

I find it's good to get started early — that's when I'm most focused — so I'll generally try to get into the office before 8:30 a.m.
