After the alarm goes off at 6 a.m., Silvey kicks off the day by enjoying a cup of coffee with her husband. With the news on in the background, they go over that day’s schedule before getting ready for work.
While she gets ready, Silvey hits play on her latest audiobook. “I love reading, but I wasn’t getting the reading done I wanted to,” she says. Now she can devour the latest thriller or biography.
By 7:40 each morning, Silvey is headed to the office. Sometimes, her work greets her in the parking lot. “That’s how I can tell if the day is going to be challenging,” she says. “There are things you can put off in business, but typically if there’s something happening with a co-worker, those are priorities. Whatever project you have takes a back seat.”
