I bought a bike! After a few years of deliberation and fear that I would not really use one, I bit the bullet and bought a bike. Her name is Beatrix, and The Builder chose himself one as well, Tom. Cruiser style bikes, made for comfort, not speed.
Yesterday, on ANZAC day, we took them on their maiden family voyage. It was so much fun, we all laughed, and chatted our way through the hour long ride, pushed and encouraged each other through the tough stuff, then laughed and chatted some more.
When reflecting after the ride with The Builder, about it’s success we realised how much like going to work it was each day. (OK, maybe work is not as fun) I am talking about our family or team environment, and how we push each other through the tougher times to reach the good times together.
With the team we have surrounded ourselves with at work, we have created a support network who work with us, not for us, to help us all to the easy bits, or rather to the successful completion of our latest renovation, extension or new build. We have a common goal of reaching the end with the highest quality product and happy clients. When working together, anything is possible!
Keeping this in mind each time we chose another member for our team, or have to let one go, we are finding that the right people are presenting themselves to us each time. It may take a little wading, or advertising, but they show up just when we need them most. It has been a different way of looking at things for us, a epiphany of sorts, however with this growing awareness, we are finding work is much more like the fun times with our encouraging and supportive team.
Do you have a bike? Remember how much fun they were as kids? Any tips on how to stop your backside from getting so sore?
