My wife and I just got home from a Road Trip with our two teenage granddaughters. We had a great time sightseeing as we made the loop from Charleston, SC to Savannah, GA to Asheville, NC. This trip had been in the planning for months and now that we are home we have the great memories of time spent together.
The things we did to make our Road Trip a success are the same things you can do to make your next building project a success.
- Long before we started the road trip we put together a plan. We purchased our plane tickets, reserved our rental car and made reservations at the Hotels we wanted to stay in. As you start your project, know where you want to go and how you are going to get there. In other words, establish the big picture for your project.
- We used the “Last Responsible Moment” decision making process. There were many things we did not pre-plan before we took off on our road trip. Things like what restaurant we would eat at, when we would visit an attraction and frankly when we would get up each morning. There are many decisions that do not need to be made when you start your project. The goal is to be smart enough to know what those decisions are and when the last responsible moment of making that decision will be.
- Stay flexible. When you are on a road trip there are always unexpected things that are sure to happen. I have yet to see a building project that has not had some unforeseen thing happen. When those things happen, stay focused on the facts and act from your head not from your heart.
Your next building project can be a success just like our road trip was if you follow these simple steps. Contact us and we can help you on your next “Road Trip”.
