On Life in Contracting

The human cost of problems (and why it's an opportunity in disguise)

Working in construction means surviving in a world of forces that push and pull - it takes its toll.

The industry can keep people close to the edge - and has driven its share over it. Why?

  • Countless details to manage
  • Changing schedules (that affect your life)
  • Changing specifications
  • Trades that don't show
  • Suppliers that don't deliver
  • Employees that don't show
  • Jobs that can go sideways
  • Unfair competition
  • Too much or too little work
  • Slow paying customers
  • The domino effect of bankruptcy
  • And more...

Most people in construction:

  • wear many hats
  • are constantly pulled in different directions
  • often go to bed at night with the gears turning
  • live with more than their fair share of stress

Most people blindly accept that the endless stream of things to manage are just part of the business - nothing can be done about it - that's just the way it is. But does it have to be that way?

Competitors face the same challenges as you. So what sets some businesses apart?

It comes down to deciding to do things differently and then making changes.

Business systems are the ONLY real way to better manage, organize, schedule, and communicate.

Why systems make things work...
