Cosy, with flowers on the balcony and cat skipping around.

I prefer working in the early morning and evening. The middle of the day is for walking and outdoor matters.

What tips would you give to improve productivity ?
Take a rest if you can’t make the decision. Take your time and the idea will appear in a while. And of course view a lot of fresh and qualitative art.

I don’t really think that I am better than somebody. But the answer maybe love to details and patience.

Close all social media, remove all distracting things and concentrate on what are you actually doing.

Going to feed the cat and watering flowers, next answering the emails and comments in social networks, doing all the urgent work. I don’t have the routine end of the day, it depends on the amount of work and the deadlines. So sometimes my working day ends before afternoon and sometimes at midnight.

Aside from your computer and your phone, what gadget can you not you go without?
My old Vivitar – a film camera, I am crazy about taking film photos.
