Who are you, and what do you do?

My name is Ryan Flink, and I work for Missoula Motor Parts.

What is one habit of yours that helps you be productive?

I can’t sit still which in turn helps me get things done.

What is your morning routine and how does it help you get the most out of your day?

The only thing I do routinely is shower every morning no matter the time I wake up. Because I can’t wake up until I shower.

In the last few years, what lifestyle, habit or behavior change has had the biggest positive impact on your life?

I wouldn’t necessarily say behavior change but the biggest thing is just growing up and into a role where I’m expected to be accountable every hour of the day no matter the situation.

When you feel unfocused, what do you do?

I find a project that required me to feel one hundred percent dialed in or I will fail.

What is one piece of software or a web service that you get immense value out of? How do you use it?

I’m very computer illiterate so I would have to say Google. Helps me find the things I need.

What is the one book you recommend most often and why?

The biography of Tiger Woods. The reason why is because I feel like he is the most dominant athlete ever in any sport. Most importantly in his amateur years. I recommend it because of the way he thinks and goes through life.

What advice would you give a smart and ambitious recent college graduate? What advice should they ignore?

Stay focused on your goals while still having fun doing your hobbies.

What is your favorite quote, one you aim to live by?

Hard work pays off when talent chooses not to work hard.
