DAY IN THE LIFE OF DILBAGH GILL
There’s no such thing as a typical day in the life for Mahindra Racing Team Principal Dilbagh Gill. With an office at both the Mahindra Racing factory in Banbury, UK and at home in the USA, as well as frequently travelling across the world to races and meetings, every day is different! Below is a snapshot of what a day in the life looks like when he’s working in his office in the USA.
Wake up and have breakfast, which is usually some type of fruit.
My first task of the day is to take a piece of paper and write down my goals for that day before I look at anything else. The first 20 mins or so of the day tend to be relatively quiet with me gathering my thoughts and making a plan for the day
First coffee of the day. I tend to have about five or six coffees in a day
A working lunch, usually I like to have something quite light. I eat early as my day starts very early when I’m based in the States
Take a short break away from my laptop. By this time Europe has finished work for the day so it works out well to take a break at this time before returning to my desk
Phone/video calls with USA and emails. It’s always a quieter time as Europe has stopped working so is a good time to get on top of tasks
Finish work for the day. Dinner and relax! I’m not a TV person but I do enjoy reading though
Switch on the 10 o’clock news to wind down for the day
