What are the results of your hard work?
A result is a consequence, effect or outcome of something. So, if you had to analyze the results of all your hard work over the years, what would your result be?
So how can you build a name that will deliver results? There are three key factors to help build your name.
Reputation: the beliefs or opinions that are generally held about someone or something.
Someone of strong character:
Integrity: Doing the right thing, even when no one is looking.
Honor: Fulfill an obligation or keep and agreement.
Strength: the emotional or mental qualities necessary in dealing with situations or events that are distressing or difficult.
Willpower: the power by which a person decides on and initiates action.
Credibility: the quality of being trusted and believed in.
The quickest way to lose credibility id taking credit for everything, being humble is critical to having people trust and believe in you.
If you want people to follow, you need to be well organized, have a plan, execute the plan, and take action when needed and above all help others be successful.
Performance: the action or process of carrying out or accomplishing an action, task, or function.
Try to follow through and execute everything on time and accurately. Make a list of everything you need to accomplish this week, when it needs to be done by and see if you can get it all mistake free.
Help implement the process and procedures your company has setup, and treat them like a living document: timely and accurately.
Showing up and just doing the job isn’t enough. Everyone on site is doing just that. You need to go above and beyond. Earn the reputation you want! Your results and your name will be remembered.
Do it right the first time: As we all know re-work is costly. Something was built, poured or placed wrong and has to be fixed. All the momentum up to this point has been shot. Having checks in place to ensure everything is correct before it's covered up will make you successful. To double check takes minutes, to fix a problem could take weeks or even months.
One way to help you get it right the first time is with pre pour checklist (pour cards).
Pour cards are only as good as the effort you put into them. You have to treat them like any contract document: Use before you think about making the pour and go through them thoroughly.

I want to give a big thanks to this weeks Guest Blogger Nate McMillin, who gives us his perception of the importance of mentoring. A great read you don't want to miss!!!
When you think of a mentor, what comes to your mind? You might think of someone who is a teacher, leader, someone wise, or a parent perhaps? The definition of a mentor is: “An experienced or trusted advisor.” Mentoring can be empowering to a person. A mentor helps you hone your talent, abilities, and skills. They bring out the best within you. They inspire you to do better then you know how. Whether you’re a mentor, or a student you’ll get out what efforts you put in. Having a mentor can be a shortcut to success. As a mentor, you can rise by lifting others. Mentors don’t have all the answers but shares knowledge, and lights a path. A mentor can make or break you. It’s crucial to find the right mentors. Finding the right mentor can be easily acquired with some effort. If you surround yourself with people who are successful, then you’re on the right path.
Some of the mentors throughout my life have been my father, co-workers, supervisors, and friends. My father mentored, and molded me into who I am today. At work, co-workers mentored, and taught me how to hone my production, skill, resources, accuracy, quality, knowledge and strengths. Surrounding yourself with passionate and successful mentors who are willing to share knowledge, will help sharpen your skills. We’ve all found ourselves at work with the people who are at work to make a paycheck. Then there are those that are passionate. More then likely those individuals there to make a paycheck are in the same position, or are no longer employed. But the passionate individuals have moved up the ranks. Surrounding yourself with the passionate individuals, and having the right mentor is a great way to succeed.
One of the rules of heroes is they usually have a mentor to help shape and mold them. Instilling them with a strong moral code. For example, Spidermans “With great power comes great responsibility.” Mentors teach heroes how to become the hero they are destined to be. It’s the same principle in any trade. A mentor teaches you to become who you are destined to be. Mentors are used in many areas of life including goal setting, physical fitness, weight loss, stress relief, financial planning, marriage, and education to name a few. Mentoring is a great tool to be used in any industry whether its construction, a sport, and can be used in many aspects of life. Sharing knowledge and expertise as a tool is beneficial for individuals and corporations alike. That’s why the “Importance of mentoring” should be embraced and practiced, not just in life, but also in construction trades, to broaden our skills, and knowledge.
