MoPro Interview with Toby Head

by Jun 19, 2014Health, Productivity, Travel

In my second video interview of the MoPro series on healthy and productive mobile professionals, road warriors and business travelers, I interviewed Toby Head, Founder and Owner of TH Associates. Toby definitely lives the mobile lifestyle by working two weeks at a time on an oil rig. My favorite quote from Toby?

It's impossible to do 14 hour days without the gym and exercise to clear my head.

Below is a brief synopsis of the interview. For the full video interviews in the series, please sign up below for instant access on Spreecast and learn what makes Toby kick ass at his job, his life and how he Works Well to Play More!

Marcey – What is a typical day for you in your job?

Toby – Currently I am working offshore on an Oil Rig which means I work for two weeks straight (i.e. no weekends off) and then have two weeks off . The day is up at 5am, at desk by 05:30, work until roughly 19:30, then go to the gym for an hour and a half to two hours, shower bed repeat!

Marcey – What do you do to stay healthy when you travel?

Toby – Food is great out here and the gym although crude has everything in it to help me train – even has a Watt Bike so I can cycle on Power when here!

Marcey – What is your most productive behaviour? What do you think makes you better able to Work Well so you can Play More?

Toby –  It's impossible to do 14 hour days without the gym and exercise to clear my head.

Marcey – What do you do at home to help your business travels go smoother?

Toby – plan plan and plan more – the benefit of what I do is when I am at home I am completely at home so can pick the kids up from school and be available for them.
