This paper explores rhythms and patterns in the project manager's habits, routines and rituals. The research question is as follows: What rhythms, habits, routines and rituals do project managers have? And what patterns can we find in them? Qualitative research methods based on grounded theory were used, and the research scope was limited to interviewing four project managers, one with a level A and two with a level B IPMA certification. The findings of this paper are that the main themes in the patterns revealed in the rhythms, habits, routines and rituals that define the project managers are in organization, communication and continuous improvements. In other words, balancing and renewal of resources. In that sense, the results are in line with the project management literature used in this thesis. This leads to the conclusion that project managers have similar patterns in their habits, routines and rituals to those generally described in the literature review and that in order to dig more deeply into the issue, a larger number of subjects would need to be studied and, possibly, that it would be necessary to interview the people who work closely with the subjects, as the subjects, like most of us, might have rhythms, habits, routines and rituals that they are not aware of, while the people who work closely with them may be aware of them.
