Quote from Miyamoto Musashi: “Know the way broadly and you will see it in all things”.
There is no truer statement in construction. The more you see, the more you know, the more you can relate your experiences to the current situation for a better outcome. Over time you will see the bigger picture. There is not a single set of rules that will apply equally to every situation. Understanding the broad nature of the construction process will let you plan for contingencies and adapt, which will ultimately lead to a successful project. There is no quick fix or life hack. It takes time to gain the knowledge. Be diligent in learning.
