You know the feeling: Your crew is working hard, interruptions are minimal, and the project’s tracking well – it’s a good day. Then you get an urgent email or phone call about a screw-up, or you make the discovery yourself. It’s bad. Even worse? This one’s on you.
You’ve got an “Oh shit” moment you need to put in reverse, and fast.
As they say, “Shit happens” – especially on construction projects (doesn’t matter how big or small). But when it’s your mistake, simply chalking it up to bad timing or a fluke accident won’t cut it. (Think for a second about what runs through your head when someone tries this one on you.)
