Occasionally I step out of my role as The Premier Construction Accountant and into another one of my many roles, that of a Project Manager.
In 2004 on a sunny day I sat in a room for several hours and worked very quietly while laboring over the Project Management Professional exam which was administered on behalf of the Project Management Institute. www.pmi.org
At the end of the exam, I was exhausted and relieved. I passed with a very high score, which meant I was now a member of an elite group of people who understand and do our best to adhere to the standards and principles of Project Management and have the internationally recognized title Project Management Professional, PMP that you may have seen after my name; Randal DeHart, PMP
Roughly, 80% of Project Management involves strategy. In any effective and efficient project, strategy precedes planning which precedes work. Most failed projects can be traced back to bad strategy.
It has been said, “If the grand strategy is correct then a number of tactical mistakes can be made and yet the enterprise will prove successful, yet efficient operations cannot overcome bad strategy”. Many people have been credited with that statement and I have found the most references to site The Art of War, an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician.
Strategy is all about understanding and knowing at a deep level in an ancient wise way and listening to your inner voice, that pure essence of Spirit, connected to the Infinite Universal Mind that knows all and is everywhere present.
In this podcast I offer a brief insight into a concept that has served me well throughout many decades and I trust you will find value in it as well. It is short, sweet and to the point and extremely powerful when understood and applied.
In life contractors produce reasons or results and, reasons
Over the years, I have experienced massive successes and spectacular failures owning and operating construction and contracting companies.
Success Always Comes fast and easy when I engage the services of mentors that are where I want to be. No one can guide you to a place they have not been and only a foolish contractor listens to them.
Failure Always Comes from engaging people and companies who cannot or will not produce results but think they can fool contractors. Though the dogs (negative people) may bark the caravan, (long line of successful contractors) moves on.
I bid you to choose wisely the six people you spend the most of your time with as The Leveling Process Operates 24/7/365 which means it is always refreshing and resetting your level of success.
The key is to gain power over yourself, not power over others; you will become a positive force for good, and a blessing to everyone you meet and even some people you may never meet.
