Day to Day

For me, a great day at work is one that has a little bit of everything - a fast-pace keeps giving me the momentum I need to be the most productive since there is a fixed amount of time for each task before I have to switch hats. It will include some time where I problem-solve on my own - say, by building a financial model, and some time where I brainstorm with a team. It will also include meetings where I have to present and defend my views, as well as meetings where I get to learn something new.
