The Days Of Our Lives: Jonathan Krywicki, Pitch and Woo

Ptich & Woo Jonathan-willyou

In The Days of Our Lives we meet some fascinating and creative folk and take a look at what their typical day holds. Far from being about the mundane, it is a celebration of what it takes to juggle the day-to-day with big ideas, a successful business and a full home life. It’s about keeping all the balls in the air – what is important and what isn’t. It’s about (extra)ordinary moments that fill our every day.

This week, I want to introduce you to Jonathan Krywicki, the go-to man before you pop that BIG question, ‘Will you marry me?’ He is the founder of Pitch and Woo, a boutique business dedicated to helping fellas create pitch-perfect fairytale proposals. Jonathan (who is often referred to as the ‘I Do Guy’) is also the author of The 7 Biggest Mistakes Men Make When Proposing and regularly write blogs on how to plan the perfect proposal.

This is a day in Jonathan’s life…


7:00 am

Wake-up and plan the day. Our seven-month old, Jake, is our alarm clock! Give Jake a bottle of milk for his first feed

Plan the day by reviewing my to-do list. I use Wunderlist which is a great iphone and MAC app. Generally I only set 3-4 main tasks to complete, of which one always includes finishing a blog article to be released on Sunday night across social media channels

Typically a main task could be breaking down a proposal into smaller more manageable components that I need to work through. For example, I’ll complete run lists for those involved in the proposal – there are 6 of these to complete. Another task involves putting together security briefing emails to the head of security at all the venues we need to film at.


9:00 am

Breakfast at home or our local cafe in Glenhuntly – Whyte Cafe. They have an amazing acai berry granola.

Start working through tasks. Generally I work in an hour block and then have a short break. During my break time I often go to the whiteboard to map out any new ideas or thoughts I have about proposals etc – I’m very visual so I like to draw mind maps and have things in front of me.

I respond to e-mails, usually 2-3 times throughout the day and do the same with checking in on social media and responding to comments etc.


12:30 pm

For lunch I might eat at home or go out to a nice cafe – My wife and I are real foodies and love trying new places!

Second task is generally completed after lunch and then I try and fit exercise in after that – ie walk, run or gym. The final major tasks for the day are then completed when I get back.


 7:00 pm

Night time is usually low key. We have dinner, often watch a movie or have friends over.


10:30 pm

I’m usually in bed by 10:30 – our life has significantly changed since having little Jake!
