What is the best advice anyone has given you ? 

I’m not sure this counts as advice given to me, but Ludwig Wittgenstein chose as a motto for his Philosophical Investigations the following quote: “It is the nature of progress that it appears much greater than it really is”. I think that’s really true of pretty much everything. Things just look bigger from close up.

What is your routine start and end of the day ? 

If I sleep at my girlfriend’s place, she makes the morning coffee and brings it to bed. If it’s my place, I do the same. After coffee I take a shower, put on clothes and cycle to work. I like to read paper-based books before I go to sleep.
