如何正确开始新一天:年轻的商界精英喜欢在早上做什么

如何正确开始新一天:年轻的商界精英喜欢在早上做什么

Jessica Mathews 2021年09月24日
一些2021年《财富》全球40位40岁以下商界精英榜单的上榜人士表示,他们喜欢在早餐、徒步旅行或工作日开始时享受一些安静时刻。

今年的《财富》40位40岁以下商界精英榜单中仍然有夜猫子。早间惯例包括猛喝咖啡,或者为了节省几分钟边淋浴边刷牙,不过也有一些上榜人士表示喜欢在早餐、徒步旅行或工作日开始时享受一些安静时刻。

以下是今年上榜精英开启一天的方式:

散步

谷歌(Google)的首席可持续发展官凯特·勃兰特首选的喘息之地是身处自然。她说,只要没有特殊情况,每天早上都会在塔玛佩斯山(Mount Tamalpais)家附近的红杉林(Redwood Forest)中走一走。“漫步林间聆听溪流鸟鸣,哪怕只有20或30分钟,都能够让我坚定目标,为一天的工作理清思绪。”勃兰特说。

学生债务危机中心(Student Debt Crisis Center)的计划主任科迪·霍纳尼安喜欢早晨做些让人踏实的事情。通常包括遛狗,在阳台上读新闻,或者听听鸟鸣。“重要的是新一天开始时释放压力,头脑清醒,做好心理准备迎接新的挑战。”他说。

喝咖啡

塔吉特公司(Target)的高级店面设计经理杰西卡·拉什喜欢早上,虽然经常有点混乱。“有两个孩子和一条狗,即便计划再完美,每天早上还是会像电影《小鬼当家》(Home Alone)一样,每个人都睡过头,而且都要迟到。”她说。尽管如此,她还是努力找到了早晨的主题:在厨房煮咖啡,看看趴在脚边的狗狗,给孩子做午餐,一边查询明尼苏达州的天气。

富达投资公司(Fidelity Investments)的私募股权全球主管卡林·弗龙兹克表示,三个孩子就是活闹钟。她说:“通常天一亮孩子们就跑到我的房间,我让他们看早间动画片,同时用手机查看邮件和当天日程安排。”之后:家庭早餐和一大壶咖啡,开启新一天。

牛排(和鸡蛋?)

FIGS的联合创始人和联合首席执行官希瑟·哈森说,每天早上为宠物狗罗杰(Roger)做牛排,然后骑上Peloton单车,边健身边阅读新闻。每周她都换种音乐听。

Perch的创始人兼首席执行官克里斯·贝尔每天一早就去健身房,早上6:30开始做早餐,这样就有时间跟女儿们一起吃饭。工作日前两个小时他尽量不安排会议,这样就可以专心完成工作或战略性思考业务。

熬过早起

美国保护联盟(American Conservation Coalition)的创始人兼总裁本杰明·巴克尔说,自己不是早起型的人,“多年来尝试了无数的早起习惯”。最近他一直在做不含糖的冰茶和早餐,阅读体育新闻,或者在公寓里远眺奥林匹克山脉。

“我做了所有‘不该做的事情’,”Niantic的首席运营官梅根·奎因说,她通常在天亮之前醒来,在床上就开始查阅电子邮件、上Slack和推特(Twitter),然后“喝几杯咖啡”。之后吃饭、穿衣服,跟两岁的孩子玩,然后跑5公里到8公里。“虽说是老生常谈,但早晨确实是我唯一的独处机会,我能够思考不同的项目、挑战,还有新的一天。”她说。

Zipline的首席执行官凯勒·里那杜说,早晨醒来的时间大概是出门前五分钟。一边洗澡一边刷牙,快速喝一杯蛋白质奶昔,这样可以节约时间。Instacart的首席执行官菲姬·西莫说,每天都赶着最后一分钟醒来,抱着女儿,在床上看电子邮件(“我知道不该这么做。”她说),一边吃能多益(Nutella)吐司(“我也不该这么做。”)。

虽然Moderna的疫苗分配与合作伙伴高级总监汉密尔顿·贝内特表示,曾经多次参加各种晨间活动,还“简短尝试”过日常冥想,但她承认最后总会变回老样子。通常情况下,她的早晨惯例是“每天第一通电话前20分钟起床,玩个‘早上7点前拼命喝咖啡’的游戏。其实,这个游戏从没有赢家。”她说。(财富中文网)

This year’s Fortune 40 Under 40 class has its share of night owls. Some morning routines include multiple cups of coffee, or brushing teeth in the shower to save a few minutes—though some honorees say they relish a few quiet moments for breakfast, a hike, or getting a head start on the workday.

Here’s how this year’s class start out their day:

Walking it off

Nature has proved to be a respite for Kate Brandt, chief sustainability officer of Google, who says she hikes in the Redwood Forest near her home on Mount Tamalpais every morning she can. “Being in the trees and hearing the streams and birdsong, even just 20 or 30 minutes, keeps me grounded in my purpose and clears my mind for the day,” Brandt says.

Cody Hounanian, director of the Student Debt Crisis Center, likes to start his day off with activities that will help him feel grounded. That usually includes taking the puppy on a walk around the neighborhood, reading the news from his balcony, or listening to the birds. “It is important to start the day stress-free, clearheaded, and mentally prepared to take on the day's challenges,” he says.

Staying caffeinated

Jessica Raasch, senior store design manager at Target, loves mornings, even if they can sometimes be a bit chaotic. “With two young children and a puppy, even the best-laid plans result in mornings that resemble the scene from Home Alone when everyone has overslept and is running late,” she says. Even so, she’s managed to find a common thread: brewing coffee in the kitchen, dog underfoot, making her kids’ lunches, and checking the Minnesota weather.

Three children make for a doable alarm clock, according to Karin Fronczke, global head of private equity at Fidelity Investments. “Usually the kids come running up to my room at sunrise and I let them watch morning cartoons while I check my emails and schedule for the day from my phone,” she says. Later on: a family breakfast and a large pot of coffee to start off the day.

Steak (and eggs?)

Heather Hasson, the cofounder and co-CEO of FIGS, says she starts off the day cooking steak for her dog, Roger, before hopping on the Peloton and reading the news. She listens to a new genre of music each week.

Chris Bell, founder and CEO of Perch, goes to the gym each morning, then starts cooking breakfast at 6:30 a.m. so he has time to eat with his daughters. He tries to leave the first two hours of his workday meeting-free, so that he can focus on getting work done or thinking strategically about the business.

Getting through it

Benji Backer, president and founder of the American Conservation Coalition, says he isn’t much of a morning person and has “tried countless morning routines over the years.” Of late, he has been making unsweetened iced tea and breakfast, reading sports news, or staring out at the Olympic mountains from his apartment.

“I do all of the things you're ‘not supposed to do,’” says Megan Quinn, chief operating officer of Niantic, who says she typically wakes up before it’s light outside and immediately reads email, Slack, and Twitter from bed, followed by “more than a couple cups of coffee.” Later you will find her feeding, clothing, and playing with her 2-year-old before heading out for a three- to five-mile run. “It's a cliché, but it's truly the only time I'm alone, and it gives me an opportunity to think through the strategy for different projects, challenges, and the day ahead,” she says.

Keller Rinaudo, CEO of Zipline, says he wakes up about five minutes before heading out the door. Brushing his teeth in the shower and grabbing a quick protein shake can save time. Fidji Simo, CEO of Instacart, says she wakes up at the last possible minute each day, cuddles with her daughter, then reads emails in bed (“I know I’m not supposed to do that,” she says), and eats Nutella toast (“I’m not supposed to do that either”).

While Hamilton Bennett, senior director of vaccine access and partnerships at Moderna, says she has had stints with various morning routines, including a “brief relationship” with daily meditation, she acknowledges that she often reverts to old habits. More often than not, her routine is “waking up 20 [minutes] before the first call of the day and playing a game of ‘how much coffee is too much coffee before 7 a.m.’ There are no winners in this game,” she says.
