Making decisions never ends for contractors like you. Being adaptable is one of the basics of good decision-making skills.
Think of decision-making as being in a bumper car. You are continually driving and trying to avoid the other bumper cars. Suppose you hit one you back up and go again (reminder this is the only safe place to hit other vehicles). The rest of the time, life as a contractor feels more like the Indy 500. You are driving as fast as you can, passing other cars, making pit stops, and scrambling to make it to the finish line.
Translate this to a typical daily life of a construction contractor:
- The paperwork, processes, and decision-making are never-ending
- The concept of time is all about 10 minutes
- Your coffee brews in less than 10 minutes
- Take a shower in less than 10 minutes
- Load the dishwasher in 10 minutes
- Take out the trash in less than 5 minutes
- Read your email in less than 5 minutes
- Decide what bills to pay in less than 5 minutes
