A word to define what kind of worker you are :
Dr. Jekyll is an obsessive worker, but Mrs. Hyde is a rather phlegmatic lounger.
What tools are essential to your work (app, software, etc..)
Scanner, Photoshop, paint, brushes, pens.
What does your office space look like?
I don’t have a studio. I paint in my kitchen. As I can stir the sugo with the one hand and and paint with the other hand this is a quite timesaving solution!
What kind of music do you listen when you are working ?
When I’m working I can’t listen to music. Art and music – each needs one’s undivided attention.
Do you have a way to organize your day to maximize your work ?
I usually do all important things in the morning. So even when I’m procrastinationg the rest of the day, at least a few things are done.
You’re better than your colleagues to :
What is the best advice anyone has given you ?
It is less an advice than something I’ve have learned so far: None of your efforts will be in vain – if you do your work with passion.
What tips would you give to improve productivity ?
If I only knew!
What is your best tip for saving time ?
I wouldn’t advise anybody to “save time”. Quite the contrary; waste time! Spend your time in reading books and magazines, paint and draw as much as possible, go out. Art, Shopping malls, Nature, museums, people … everything supports inspiration.
What is your routine start and end of the day ?
Start: Feeding the cat End: Feeding the cat!
Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?
My reading glasses.
