Eliot Gattegno|香港中文大学教授、CIDE创始人





我叫 Eliot Gattegno。我是一名创业者、音乐家和教授。我曾就读于哈佛大学、斯坦福大学和加州大学。现在是香港中文大学(深圳)创新创意创业中心(CIDE)的创始人及负责人,也是经管学院的副教授。




我不喜欢用太多 app。但我现在喜欢用的有:CloudMagic,用于最基本的邮件处理;Evernote,我差不多把所有东西都存在这里;Redbooth,用于团队协作;Stickies,记录我每天的待办事项;以及 f.lux,它可以根据时间变化调整我的笔记本屏幕。


我在好的咖啡馆里工作效率最高。我的最爱之一是旧金山的 Four Barrel Coffee ,那里提供绝妙的浓缩咖啡,音响系统放着精选的音乐,光线明亮,空气新鲜,只可惜太远了。深圳华侨城创意文化园的 Gee Coffee 和香港的 Coffee Academics 也都很好。




每天晚上在便笺卡上写下三件第二天必须要做的事。每天早上,从最容易的那件事开始做到最难的那件,并在上午 11 点前解决它们。如果你每天都这么做,你就能生活得更快乐。


Who are you, and what do you do?

My name is Eliot Gattegno. I am an entrepreneur, musician, and professor. I studied at Harvard, Stanford and the University of California. I am currently the Director and Founder of the Center for Innovation, Design and Entrepreneurship and an Associate Professor of Practice at the School of Management and Economics at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen.

What hardware do you use?


And what software?

I don’t like to use too many apps. But ones I like right now are: Cloudmagic for simple e-mail; Evernote for storing just about everything; Redbooth for organizing my team; Stickies for what I need to do today: and f.lux to adjust the screen on my laptop according to the time of day.

What is your ideal work environment?

I do my best work at great coffeeshops. One of my favorites is Four Barrel Coffee in San Francisco. There you will find superb espresso, choice music on a real sound system, and lots of light and fresh air. But if that is too long of a trip, Gee Coffee in OCT Loft is good in Shenzhen, so is the Coffee Academics in Hong Kong.

Where does your work inspiration come from?

I can take inspiration from just about anything. I love cities that integrate natural beauty; Tokyo is a great example.

Recommend a useful tool for daily life.

Each evening write down on a notecard three things that if completed will leave you feeling satisfied at the end of the next day. Each morning start with the easiest and finish with the hardest. Get them done by 11 am. Do this daily and you’ll live a happier life.
