Dear A,

This is highly individual question. So as for me my motivation, my objective and my wiliness to make this day the best day in my life are the thongs that really drives me. However, I'm not sure that they are transferable to you. So I would simply recommend you to be yourself and to be authentic.

If you need any further help or advice, feel free to reach out.

Best,
André

Prepping for McKinsey Interview - so working with interviewer-led style cases :)

My alarm, against my will 

Ok ok, fine.

The first thing on my morning routine is going to the gym, and I actually wake up and look forward to it because then I can pick up where I left off on some captivating audiobook or podcast. During the week, I don't have that much down hours to just sit and listen my books and podcasts, so I made it a gym thing. If I want to know what happened to my favourite character, I gotta go to the gym to find out.

I hate feeling lazy and unproductive because I know that wasted time is time I could be learning or furthering my career. One of my biggest fears is being unsuccessful.
