What’s your morning routine?
7:30 AM The alarm goes off and I am a one-alarm type of girl so I am now awake.
7:45 AM I have either successfully avoided clicking emails on my phone or I have probably got straight into replying if something was there and urgent (horrible habit)
8:00 AM I have got up, made oats and coffee and am back in bed to listen to a podcast for half an hour
8:30 AM I am in the shower to wake myself up, ready to clear the desk and start around 8:45
6 Rapid Questions

The only reward for good work is more work.

What book are you reading right now?
Notes To Myself My Struggle to become a person by Hugh Prather. I picked it up by chance at a book fair last month and it is so perfect.
If you could only share one piece of wisdom with the world that you’ve learned on your journey so far, what would it be?
You have to do the work. There is no point worrying or putting expectation on your work and what it will bring you. Whether it is ‘success’ or money that you are hoping it gives to you in return you can’t control that. All you can control is the work you do. So you better find joy in that alone.
