Tell Me One Valuable Thing You Learned in 2008?

The end of a year provides the opportunity to take stock, to contemplate what happened compared to what you hoped would happen. To think on a grand scale, not just about the pesky subcontractor du jour who’s driving you crazy.

So, tell me one valuable thing you learned in 2008? Just jot it down in the comments section. I get about 1000 readers a month, I’m hoping some of you learned something and have the gumption to share it.

As for me, I’d say I’ve been re-learning a saying Dan Harmon, construction superintendent taught me 15 years ago, “Don’t get mad at your money.” Challenging project owners, especially those who delay making decisions as long as possible and then some, are still the project owners. We work because they spend and I need to keep that at the forefront of my petty little efficient mind.

Hoping you a Happy New Year.
