Instead of taking a defensive approach to your workday, try the more deliberate and regimented approach that is time blocking.
He will now assume the role of Executive Chairman, while Dexter Cutajar has been appointed CEO.
He looks back on the past week, acknowledging the need for resilience, appreciating milestones, and getting some much-needed rest.
He takes over from Alejandro Gosttuski, who will now take on the role of an Advisor.
