We need the private residential and commercial markets to increase.
But hey I am not complaining. This is all definitely good news...
Construction industry comes out of recession News Construction News
At block architects I always advise the Team that it is important to grow personally and professionally. I am a great one for continued learning not only about Architecture but also about Business and Entrepreneurship. I've started reading 'The One Minute Entrepreneur' by Ken Blanchard, Don Hutson and Ethan Willis.
I wanted to share some of the 'One Minute Insights' from the first Chapter. They are very interesting:-
- Associate with people you admire and can learn from.
- keep a notebook of the wisdom you read, hear, and learn, and distill that learning into One Minute Insights.
- A good life is built on strong, solid values such as integrity, love, honesty, and purposeful work.
- You never nead to cheat to win.
- What is right is more important than who is right.
This is a good book!
