How I Work

A quick glance at how I go about work and a few habits of mine.

Location: Miami, FL.

Current gig: Luthier (hand-craft guitars) at Rittenhouse Guitars.

Current mobile device: iPhone 6s.
I do not feel the need upgrade to a newer version because I value the headphone jack feature immensely.

Current computer: Apple MacBook Pro.

One word that best describes how you work: Passionate.
When I start working for someone or on a project, it takes me a few days to get the essence of it. Once I understand why I am doing it then I become passionate about it to the point where almost everything that happens outside of the actual work I try to relate it to the job. I channel that energy to think outside-of-the-box and problem-solve.

What apps/software/tools can’t you live without?
 Ebay app is a must for me throughout the day. I sell shoes and am in constant communication with my buyers. I use the Sleepcycle app to keep track of how much I sleep. It features an alarm clock setting that wakes you up in your lightest sleep phase.

What’s your workspace like? Minimalist.
I do all of my work at my corner desk. I always keep a pen, notebook and my Harry Potter glass water bottle in my desk. I clear everything in my view whenever I have to get stuff done. I have a Yoda funko pop in my desk which helps me whenever I am having trouble with any problem. I simply ask myself, “what would Yoda do?” I keep one Tropical Breeze scented candle by my laptop which I enjoy smelling once a day. Just once a day.

What’s your favorite to-do list manager? Stephen Coveys Seven Habits Weekly Planner.

What’s your best time-saving trick?  To know whether I should invest my time in X matter I ask myself three things: 1) Does it edify my brain? 2) On the long run, is it worth it? 3) If every single human does X thing, will the world be a better place?
If the answer is no to two of the three questions, I waste no time on it and carry on my with my life.

Besides your phone and computer, what gadget can’t you live without? My iTouch.

What everyday thing are you better at than anyone else?
Constantly discovering and drawing parallelisms between the minuscule things I notice during the day, to the big picture ideas and concepts.

What are you currently reading? Admired : 21 Ways to Double Your Value. The Bible.

What do you listen to while you work?
Upbeat indie music if I work in the morning/daylight. At night I listen to the “Deep Focus” playlist from Spotify.

Are you more of an introvert or an extrovert?
I am an introvert. Spending time alone in nature fuels my soul. I enjoy small parties rather than big parties. Whenever I go to the movie theatre, I choose the early afternoon showtime slot. I have noticed that around introvert people I become an extrovert to lighten things up, get a conversation going.

What’s your sleep routine like?
Around 10:30-11 pm I clean up any visible mess in my room, start playing the “Deep Focus” playlist on my laptop. Then, I floss and brush my teeth. Set up my Sleepcycle alarm and by 11:30 pm I already have fallen asleep. 8 hours of sleep is non-negotiable!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
As a person, you cannot change the world, but you can change the world of one person.

Is there anything else you’d like to add?
I have come to understand that failure is necessary for you to have success in anything in this life.
