One step forward, two steps back, slide to the right and shimmy on the left...this is the dance of PROGRESS. It's a dance that requires patience and perseverance, an ability to keep all appendages moving at the same time on occasion is most helpful, and it's the key to style -- hopefully resulting in a smooth tango and not special Seinfeld episode of Elaine's dance.
I've decided to include a little project visual-- steps to the project 851 dance.
Big House one step forward:
Octopus one step forward:
Two steps back = (flash back to 1952)
Yup, channelling Gene Kelly can get you through refining those dance steps when working on a building project, especially all the multi-thinking; is that's a word? What I mean is that while work takes place on the ground (inside, outside, BH, Octopus...) other decisions come flying at ya. Not only do you have to decide but the timeline can be very short on when you need to make the call. So, when it gets really crazy who better than Gene Kelly to turn to about dance steps and style. The layers of decisions that need to be made result in the final dance style. Perhaps a dance mix of fixtures a go go, waltz of the trusses, millwork shake down, and infrastructure systems do-si-doe.
Smooth Tango or Elaine dance moves? It all comes together through the choices and decisions: what to pick, what to pick? and how does one effect the other? oh and if you pick that then it effects that (ie. one sink = millwork and another doesn't...) should I change dance partners?...
My head is spinning.....
