“I started out as a corporate lawyer. I became a fanatic over checklists. In fact, the book that I give out is The Checklist Manifesto by Atul Gawande. That’s one of my biggest hacks—you have to write everything down.”

"I like to walk to work. Our office moved a couple of years ago, so I eventually moved to [stay] within walking distance. I use [the time] for phone calls, and I do a lot of walking meetings. That was one thing that bonded me with Adam [Neumann, WeWork’s CEO] when I first started. We would do some one-on-ones just walking the city. People used to say the best way to talk to your teenage kids was to drive with them because you’re going somewhere and don’t have to make eye contact, so it would allow them to open up. I believe in that.”
