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.
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.
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.
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.
