Sitting on my balcony this morning and I overhear this conversation from across the road mentioning a local business:
“Yeah the painter hasn’t finished yet and will be here until lunchtime… so I’ll have to come back tomorrow when he’s done”
How often have you heard this or had this conversation and been frustrated that your day is disrupted based on others taking longer to do what they need to do. Whether this be in the field or in the office, it’s such a common thing to happen.
Simple tip… if you are reliant on someone else completing their work before you start, call ahead / contact that person to see where they are at and how that impacts your timeline. This would allow other work to be prioritised and the flow maintained.
That one quick phone call could be a game changer !!
