Summer 2019

Summer is here and as usual projects are going up as fast as they can build. It is already busy and will pick up more across our local. Sometimes we get caught up in the hustle of getting things done and forget to step back for just a second. One of the most rewarding aspects of our jobs are to be able to look back on where we started and what it is when we leave. The majority of work that we do will remain for the rest of our lives. We all have projects that we think of every time we drive by or go into occasionally. They all have their challenges that seem to push our buttons but when you look back 5, 10, 25 years later we seem to remember the good things more than the bad. This summer take a look around. Enjoy the brothers and sisters we work with daily, the friendships you have made in this career. Just look at what you were able to build from an idea on a piece of paper. Take a minute to appreciate the “old timers” and imagine how many lives they have touched by sharing their knowledge and lessons. Look at the new members coming in and try to pass your experiences and maybe a little history of the past. Sometimes just taking a step back for a minute can really make your day. 

Fraternally, Brandon Leatham
