Discipline and ambition have helped Jaya Vaidhyanathan accomplish a lot in her academic and professional life. The CEO, BCT Digital (Bahwan CyberTek group), also brings a methodical approach to her mornings. Wake up time is 5.30 am on most days. A 5-mile run is broken down into segments of varying intensity. And the first meal of the day is in the 3-2-1 ratio (vegetables, protein, carbohydrates). Of course, the roof-blowing aroma of Chennai filter coffee further helps the Cornell MBA, Madras University engineer and former Wall Streeter to be on her feet before sunrise.
Are you a morning person? What time do you get up on working days?
I am a morning person and am usually up by 5.30 am on working days. There’s something beautiful about the sound of birds and the smell of fresh coffee early in the morning. It helps me start my day on a calm and positive note.
