    One word that best describes how you work :

    How many hours per day do you work?
    Per day - in different ways, per week usually runs 60-70 hours.

    Current Mobile Device:
    iPhone 6

    Current computer:
    2013 13-inch MacBook Air

    Without which applications, programs, utilities can you not live?
    Gmail - our company has a strong “postal” culture, half of the meetings have been replaced by correspondence. Google Drive, as a result. Messengers and task management programs are also mandatory, but there are several of those and others now. From a very private one: I liked the Lingua Leo application for Chrome - I send English words unknown to me there, in order to memorize later.

    What kind of life hack helps you save time?
    • I configured Gmail in such a way as to see almost only significant messages in the main mailbox. Mailings or correspondence on topics that I can contact once a day or once every few days fall into separate mail folders.
    • I read a lot of things - but almost never get distracted by articles during the course of the working day, drop them into Pocket, and then read there: when in transport or at lunch, or when I’m just tired and not ready for meaningful work. At the same time, this guarantees a double selection of materials - as a result, I try to read only the standing.

    But the harsh truth is that I still do not really know how to save time - therefore I often work in the evenings and on weekends.

    Which to-do manager do you use?
    Clear Well, Google Calendar for managing your work week.

    What do you listen to when you work?
    iTunes Radio - there are 5-7 radio stations, in the names / descriptions of most words like groovy or lounge.

    What are you reading now?
    The "Anti-Fragility" of Nassim Taleb and "Only Paranoids Survive" by Andrew Grove. I always read several books at the same time - I don’t know why. Probably some one of two or three at a time suitable for reading is better correlated with mood.

    Which book of the last read was the most memorable?
    The Third Wave by Alvin Toffler. More than the actual thing about macro-changes in society, and I was a little shocked when I realized that it was written back in 1980.

    Do you use electronic readers or prefer paper books?
    Almost exclusively iBooks: I always make notes while reading, then it’s convenient to “reread” the book only by notes. Well, hundreds of books are always with you, on any device.

    How much time do you sleep?
    Before 8 hours, with the birth of a child - 6-7, and it seems to be enough.

    Are you an owl or an early bird?
    Owl. The most useless time in terms of work is early morning, the most effective is evening.

    How do you have breakfast?
    Fruits, cottage cheese, coffee. A lot of coffee.

    How do you spend time on the way to / from work?
    I ride the subway, read on the road. True, usually not books - but all that has been preserved in Pocket in recent days.

    What advice have you ever been given you can pass on to others?
    Steve Jobs once said that he was following the advice of the great hockey player Wayne Gretzky: “We need to move where the puck will be soon, and not where it is now.” So I try my best.
