Fall is one of my favorite times of the year. Even though I live in South Florida and don’t get to enjoy watching the colors change outside like I did growing up in New England, the lower humidity and crispness of the morning air still reminds me that a new season is here, signifying change. The thoughts that float through my mind this time of year are the holidays approaching, the end of another calendar year, a recap of the goals I set almost a year ago and, yes, thoughts of the clothes I can pull out of the closet to wear now that it is cool enough!
So what is autumn, or fall, season and what does it symbolize for you? Historically, fall marks the transition between summer and winter, and Thanksgiving marks the time to celebrate the harvest. The harvest is what you have produced as the rewards for your labor all year long. So, is it “Happy Harvest” for you and your company?
This month’s newsletter is titled, “Thriving at Home, Work and Community.” If you are a business owner, make sure you take the time to read and ask yourself the questions in Kent’s article titled, “Survival or Success.” It continues to amaze me that so many contractors work off cash flow and don’t really know what they have for resources, not to mention how to manage the resources they have.
Over the next few months, we at Construction Connection will be focusing on helping you to look at ways in your business to take better care of what has been entrusted to you. We hope that you will take the time to read and learn about something from our blog once a month so a year from now you can say you had the happiest, healthiest harvest ever!
Wishing you, your family and associates a wonderful Thanksgiving month! We are thankful for you and the construction industry.
Suzanne, on behalf of Kent and the team at Construction Connection!
