Your choice of what to pursue in construction is a driver of success. But more importantly what you choose NOT to pursue will have a greater impact on success in the long run. Whether it is an argument, a new job, a project or a new market, it is always better to know when to stay away than when to pursue. Ego and fear will affect your desire to choose an approach that will have a negative long-term impact. Leave them at the door… step back and see the current situation, potential results, and evaluate your capabilities and limitations. Make your decisions based on the facts not the emotion. There will always be risk, but make it a calculated risk. Because sometimes the best learning experience comes from the things you didn’t go after.
