I have the privilege of working with our in-house design studio, called Samara, and our humanitarian team, called Human. Samara is thinking about the future of Airbnb, and Human is working on ways to leverage our platform outside the cause of day-to-day business.

My job is to be a spokesman – the spokesman, I suppose – for the President, for the White House, to do the daily briefings, to manage the press corps in terms of travel, day-to-day needs, access, interviews, all those issues.

My buddy tells me a lot of interesting stories about what goes on in prison – it just makes my head spin about what they deal with on a day-to-day basis.

Everybody knows that there are quality players at centre back for Madrid and for me that’s the day-to-day challenge. That’s why it’s important to be ready to take advantage of every chance that comes up.

One of the things that I’ve always loved to do is brainstorm ideas with friends and get together and talk about what they’re buildingEssentially, my day-to-day is just going around and meeting entrepreneurs and talking to them about what they plan on launching.

My goal all along has just been to work and support myself. I’ve been really lucky to walk away from the ‘Twilightseries unscathed. Somebody asked me recently what it’s like to be a star. I thought that was the strangest question. If you saw my day-to-day life, the word ‘star’ just doesn’t apply.

If you need to take a step back from day-to-day operations and plot out the long-term direction of your user experience strategy, consultants can give you a perspective you can’t get on your own.

I’m still learning a lot as a songwriter. I try to write down and make a note of ideas that I cross paths with on a day-to-day basis, whether it be a conversation or something I hear on the radio, seeing a movie, or just thoughts in my head as I’m walking down the street.

In my day-to-day life, I did learn to be passionately curious from my dad and always search and have a hunger for knowledge and want to understand why things work the way they do.

It’s a lot of work and I also feel like I’ve done it. I miss comedy. And I also think that, from purely a logistical standpoint, that the day-to-day schedule on a comedy allows you to have a life, much more of a life, than on a drama.

I want to try and portray characters that are in real life, that you see day-to-day. If I were to just stay in my little village in Wales, I would have gotten a very small taste of a very big plate.

Physics is perceived as a lonesome, nerdy kind of enterprise that has very little to do with human feelings and the things that excite people day-to-day about each other. Yet physicists in their own working environment are very social creatures.

In some theoretical way I know that a half-million people hear the show. But in a day-to-day way, there’s not much evidence of it.

The wonderful John Avildsen was a hero and father figure who was really present in my life even though we didn’t have day-to-day or year-to-year.

Golf is day-to-day. It’s shot to shot; it’s not four days at a time.

The people who are writing online and the people in my genre of creative non-fiction exert a great deal more freedom that journalists are allowed to exert in their day-to-day work.

Lee Gutkind
Nobody has had a bigger influence on me as far as day-to-day preparation than Todd Lickliter. He was a huge, huge, huge influence.

I totally accept that it’s a legitimate criticism that when you are involved in the day-to-day scrum of government… that what can get lost is the narrative, the hymn sheet… the song that inspires and lifts people’s sights.

In day-to-day life, there’s so much that’s calculated: so many fake, surface-level interactions that don’t amount to anything.

I love working at NASA, but the part that has been the most satisfying on a day-to-day basis, hour-to-hour, minute-to-minute, has been working on board the space station. Even if I’m just cleaning the vents in the fans, it all is important.

It’s good to have somebody who is there to see you day-to-day, even hop into some runs with you.

For me, learning music and playing music and learning your instrument has incredible parallels for our day-to-day existence as human beings. All the ideas of discipline, and having a sense of yourself and translating that to music, that’s all part of life’s journey.

A lot of times in our jobs, we go day-to-day, we’re in a routine, we sometimes become robots.
