Management

Best piece of advice I have received…

Pay attention to and deal with problems early and while they are still small. Problems only fester and get worse.

Success means…

Someone is given a chance to succeed that would normally not have had that chance.

How I stay organized…

To do lists, semi-organized piles on my desk and too many folders within my email account.

How I deal with failure…

First, go for a walk to clear my head and then try to understand what went wrong and how that can be prevented in the future.

My morning routine is…

Bike ride in Central Park (weather permitting), walk/subway to work and a light breakfast at my desk while responding to emails and planning the day.

My daily must-read websites…

AVC, The New York Times, The New York Post, Xconomy, FierceBiotech, TechCrunch.
