Construction is hard, fast paced, and demanding. As a leader in construction you are constantly bombarded with the need to make a call now through meetings, calls, emails and texts. It can be overwhelming which can lead to making a snap decision or saying something that you will regret. Take a breath… no really, take a breath. It is a physical action, a pause in your thoughts, words, or actions that will help you detach emotionally from the situation. The breath gives you time to look around and evaluate the next path. Our current society has imposed the need to act immediately on everything we encounter. But we don’t, take a breath, think it through, prioritize, and then act.
