As the leader of a company, you are there to set an example, to lead and inspire a team of individuals to achieve a series of business goals. But, how do these business leaders go about their daily routine?
Business Leader spoke to Edward Taylor – Founder of Purition – about his working day.
What Time Do You Usually Wake Up?
Unless it’s really important I never set an alarm, the monotony of an alarm kills my creativity, that said I’m always up before 8am however it’s been creeping later during lockdown!
What Do You Typically Have for Breakfast?
I like to ‘break’ my overnight ‘fast’ at 11am with Purition shake!
What’s The Rest of Morning Routine Before You Start Work?
I’m oldskool; I shower, brush my teeth and leave the house.
First Thing You Do At Start Of Work Day?
A cup of English breakfast tea brewed for four mins with a splash of full-fat cow’s milk.
How Do You Prioritize Your Work?
Like everyone else I write a to-do list starting with at least three jobs I did yesterday so I can tick them off straight away. I do that but then I try to put the big rocks in the jar first but often I’ll end up starting my day when everyone else goes home.
Do You Plan Meetings or Keep them Fluid?
I like a bullet point agenda and will always ask different members of the team to lead the meetings.
Working Lunch or Take A Break?
Working lunch at 2pm but I’ll take plenty of breaks throughout the day.
When Does Your Working Day End?
I’m usefully done by 7pm luckily home is only a few mins away.
How Do You Prepare For Next Day?
I don’t but now you’ve asked I’m thinking I probably should!
Fav Piece of Tech?
It has to be my apple pen and my iPad pro as I love to draw on anything! Also, I love my standing desk but that’s not very techie these days!
How Do You Switch Off?
I cook most nights, that’s my off switch!
