At 9:00 am, I arrive at the Harborough Innovation Center, where our main office is located. Say a quick hello to the receptionists at the front desk and make sure to scan what sweet treats the on-site café has in store today (it was a Strawberry Cheesecake, my favourite!).
I head up to the top floor of the building, and on my way to the office, fill my water bottle and grab a cup of tea to get me going for the day.
The first task for any day is to check through my emails for any urgent tasks that need to be completed and any updates to projects I’ve been working on. This morning it’s not too busy, with a couple of emails from clients about monthly reporting.
By 9:30, after emptying my inbox, I start to plan out my day by looking at the to-do list I set for myself the day before and begin prioritising tasks. Planning is critical as it helps me stay focused throughout the day and ensures that nothing falls through the cracks; plus, it gives me a sense of accomplishment when crossing the tasks off.
