Picture your greatest successful moment; now consider how you achieved it. Was it the preparation beforehand? Visualizing the completion of the goal over and over, strategizing week after week before attempting the task? Now look at a very memorable moment for a successful athlete. Surprisingly, there are many similar attributes pertaining to successful athletes and successful construction leaders. They too visualize, strategize, and replay all possible scenarios over and over to achieve that greatest success. In construction, there is always a critical path, the unknowns or the unexpected, forcing us to excel above the norm to meet the challenge. One way to excel is visualize each step being executed successfully before attempting the task. Ultimately breaking it down into steps executed to perfection and never dream of failure. Although it’s necessary to have a back up strategy, the focus should be successfully completing the goal.
