What is your favorite item in your workspace?
It's very hard to pick one, but I think I couldn't work without the eXpress Keyboard Platform
How do you spark creativity?
Lately I'm trying to spend a lot of time in silence, when I'm not on the computer. Usually I listened to a lot of podcasts and audiobooks, but creativity usually gets sparked from silence. When I'm working on the computer and I'm trying to focus, I block Spotify and I only use tools like Brain.fm or Noisli
How do you keep the work-life balance?
This is a bit of a loaded question. I'm trying to book at least 2 hours of "Fun" on my calendar, and I try to respect that every day. I think life is a bit pointless if we only work all day with a hope that we'll relax and have fun "one sunny day". I usually hopped out of bed, grabbed coffee, and went straight to my computer, but in the past year I've tried to increase the space between waking up and working. I started with 3 minutes, but now I have at least 3-4 hours where I'm doing my morning routine, workout, sauna, breakfast in silence, etc. I'm learning a hard lesson that it's not all about work and it's better to work a few focused hours while being healthy, instead of ruining my health by working all day. I'm planning to talk more about this on my YouTube channel this year.
