Congratulations on a hugely successful and busy year! How do you find the right work/rest balance?
Thank you, I don’t rest or work. I just carry on learning and improving.
As we’re all about sleep at Harvey Norman, how many hours sleep would you get a night?
I do love sleep! I usually sleep when I feel like it, some nights I’d sleep for 11 hours and others a couple of hours at a time. I usually sleep when I feel I need it.
How does lack of sleep affect your performance?
Sleep is everything! I always make time for it.
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the morning?
Drink water or green tea! I like to wake up to water to start hydrating straight away.
How does travel and unusual hours impact your sleep?
Depending on the flight time, it usually takes me a few days to get back to normal.
