How do you prioritize your time?

I always start with thinking from a broader perspective- what are the important things in this life? For example, family is important, self-value is important, and health is the foundation, so whenever I need to make a decision or assess priorities, I’d make sure they are aligned with the overall goal of life. Randi Zuckerburg’s “Pick 3” approach is helpful in making me feel comfortable walking away from things I “should” do, I’d never sacrifice my sleep though.

我都會從更廣的角度去想- 生命中重要的是甚麼?譬如家庭很重要、自我價值很重要,健康則是一切的基礎。每當我需要作決定會評估優先順序,我會先問自己這個決定是否和人生整體的優先順序一致。蘭蒂祖克伯的「選三哲學」也讓我在放棄事情時不會那麼有罪惡感;但我是絕對不會放棄睡眠的。

What cities can we find you in?

I’m based in Taipei, with regular trips to LA and Bay area. I travel to different Asian cities as well.

主要在台北,但會在洛杉磯、灣區、和亞洲各城市間飛來飛去。

What's your Edge?

I have a very diverse background (sociology, sports management, social work), I’ve worked in various industries across multi-cultures (sports industry, US State government, international nonprofit), but I think one of my biggest edges is I’m quiet and open-minded enough to listen and think through everything I came across. “Still waters run deep,” that’s what they say.

我的背景很多元(社會學、運動管理、社工),我在不同產業(運動產業、美國州政府、國際非營利組織)有許多跨文化經驗,但我想我最大的優勢應該是可以安靜、不報成見地傾聽。「靜水深流」,對吧?

What are you reading these days (mags, websites, books)?

Being a fan of sports literature, I’m reading Dirk Hayhurst’s “Out of My League” to learn his journey in the minor league baseball.

我很喜歡看運動文學,最近在看Dirk Hayhurst寫他在小聯盟旅程的 “Out of My League”。

Stress management tips?

Being alone, eating sweets with rock music on. This has been proven to be very helpful to create an oasis in the desert of stress.

自己一個人、吃甜食、聽搖滾樂。這些幫我在壓力山大的情況下為自己創造一方綠洲。
