"Another construction project completed without any mishaps!"
I always thought the best time on a construction project was at the end, when you were loading your equipment onto trucks and sending it to another project, the company yard, or back to the supplier. Wow, another construction project completed without any mishaps! Job satisfaction! You could breathe a sigh of relief. Relax at last.
Recently I wondered what gave me job satisfaction and what I was most thankful for at the end of my construction projects. Here are some thoughts:
Knowing your construction project was a success
"A project with a death or serious injury will be remembered for the wrong reasons for the rest of your career."
"Good quality work is something that I am always proud of."
"I found deep satisfaction in the success of my team."
Completing construction projects successfully
"Don’t you hate those projects that never seem to end?"
There are different reasons to be thankful for at the end of a construction project. What were you thankful for at the end of your last project? What will you be thankful for at the end of your current project? Are you taking steps to ensure this happy satisfied ending?
