Sean Parkers Work Ethic
This one day example will give you an idea of what Sean Parkers typical daily schedule is like:
- Over the last ten hours he’s interviewed two potential VPs for his new video startup, answered hours’ worth of e-mails about the music platform he’s backing, Spotify,
- Met with a potential CEO for his Facebook charity app, Causes.
- Booking bands and wrangling vendors for his engagement party, scheduled in New Jersey the same night Hurricane Irene looks to hammer the Northeast (with Lenny Kravitz grounded in North Carolina, he eventually subs in the Cold War Kids).
- Sean breaks from work to dine with Jack Dorsey, the chief of Facebook rival Twitter and payment service Square.
- After dinner, at the restaurant bar, Sean Parker interviews another potential boss for Causes. By the time Sean Parker drops off a journalist at his hotel, it’s 11:30 p.m. Parker’s day is about half done.
- For the next six hours Parker fires off e-mails, then turns to his private Facebook page. Just before 7 a.m. he goes to bed. Four hours later he’s up, ready to do it all again.
