“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” – Peter Drucker
Have you ever built your own home or office from the ground up?
I recently managed a development of a brand new office space for one of the businesses that I operate. We were excited at the onset of consolidating 3 offices into one contiguous space. We got to design the space to be a custom fit and best use of the 14,000 square feet.
Everything was exciting until… the real work of managing the project began. There were multiple meetings each week with space designers, engineers, municipal planners, the landlord, and other required trades. This spanned over the course of 3 months leading up to the move-in which was another project in of itself.
I could elaborate for a few hours over a coffee together on the many things that I learned from this experience.
