Great Moments in Construction History: The Pyramids

The year was 2630 B.C. and while it would make sense for our story, the B.C. does NOT stand for before computers.  We would have to wait a few thousand more years before that modern miracle to arrive.  The place was Saqqara, Egypt. The ruler on the throne was King Djoser.  Back in those days, when a King took the throne, the building of his tomb was to begin almost immediately. Talk about working yourself to death! Therefore, unlike our expedited turnaround times today, our ancient construction ancestors would take 20 – 3o years to construct a building.  This was 20 – 30 years with no safety plan, no technological help, no customer management software, and no modern construction luxury’s.  So, how did they do it!?  How did they build such a massive structure that withstood the sands of time?

Food For Thought

photo of child holding a can on a string to his earThe most important skill anyone can have is the ability to listen.

You probably thought that I was going to say something like time management or being able to use Microsoft Office.

The immediate access to information, at our fingertips and the anonymity of the internet, has proven to be a valuable tool in the growth of our society but has had some undesired consequences in the area of social interactions.

Understanding how to get across your wants/needs is essential to every job; no matter if you are a skilled laborer or a CEO. Someone in the construction industry or someone in the mortuary sciences. At Bowman Constructors, we pride ourselves in our ability to listen to our owners. It is one of the assets that sets us apart from our competition.

Taking the time to focus on understanding another person’s views will not only allow for a broader conversation on a topic but will also grow your knowledge base and open you up to new ideas and ways of thinking.

It isn’t as easy as it sounds. Personally, this is a pain point for me as I tend to want to get my ideas out before I forget them or the opportunity disappears. What I find, however, is that listening does not mute my own ideas but gives them more strength.

Try it out!
