I start my day by drinking a glass of water and while I do that, I set an intention for the day and visualize myself meeting this intention. I then do some quick stretching, make my bed, shower and get ready to go to work.
My favorite part of the morning is having a strong coffee (flat white is my go-to) and a healthy breakfast.
I arrive at work and my first task for the day is to look at my calendar and prepare a quick to-do -list prioritizing imminent tasks for the day. I work better if I write down the tasks in my notebook as I am a bit old school.
I have minutes to draft up from yesterday’s consultant team meeting, recut a programme and chase up the consultant team on Building Consent RFI responses. As I work through the list, I take the completed tasks off the list.
I normally bring lunch from home but today I am going to Commercial Bay with my colleague to have my favorite Vietnamese Pho.
I do not prefer checking emails first thing in the morning as it distracts me from completing other tasks so I take this time to check and respond to any emails.
I have a Site Progress Meeting for Satori at 2 PM so I leave for the meeting. Post meeting, I do a quick walk around the construction site and enjoy the beautiful view of Orakei Basin.
The meeting went well and I am back in the office. I focus on the remainder of tasks for the day starting with reviewing the tender response from the Contractor on Hospice Project. I also take some time to prepare for tomorrow’s User Group Meeting.
We recently won a new Demolition Project that I need to prepare the final PMP (Project Management plan) draft for the director’s review.
I am studying New Zealand Diploma in Construction part time at Unitec so I pack up my desk and head to college to attend “Professional Practice for Construction” class that is scheduled for today.
After I finish my classes, I head home, freshen up and go to the gym to exert the last of my energy for the day.
Time to cook some healthy dinner and settle in on the couch for the much-needed Netflix and Chill time.
