The day usually starts with a cup of coffee and making a schedule for myself on what to do for that day. The key with this is to not plan too much or things that seem impossible but rather are challenging.

When I have a clear view of the planning of the day, I check my schedule for meetings that are of interest and the mail. After that, I start on the tasks that are planned for the day. When I’m stuck on something or uncertain, I can contact other people working on similar projects on how they solved it and gather new ideas.

Once a week I also have a meeting with the team that I work in, here I present the progress of my project and things I’m stuck on. While also discussing the goals of the upcoming week.

I really like this approach; it gives me the responsibility to plan what to do and gives me a grip on how the project goes. This also means that I carry responsibility for what is discussed and gives me something to be proud of.

There are a million projects with even more ideas at Prodrive, there will always be something interesting for you to do.
