As a kid growing up, I spent a lot of time in my step-dad’s shop (aka the family garage) with him. He was a handy guy. He did a lot of woodworking. Woodworking takes so much time and patience it it unreal. It is definitely a slow and steady craft and a skill that is built up over time. Very much like the construction industry that I work in today.
I personally think people in the construction industry are some of the smartest people I know. I started thinking a lot over the last weekend about all the life lessons I learned in my dad’s “shop”. I would like to share a few of them with you. Most are probably not new to you, but let me tell you how I see them.
