Monday’s Vision

May 6, 2008 2:12 pm0 comments

I used to work for a president of General Motors who had a great statement he made to all of his managers. He said never confuse work with progress. In other words, if a worker spends countless hours on the job and gets nothing accomplished he needs your attention. On the other hand, a worker who spends minimal hours on the job and always meets the objective of the assignment needs to be promoted. I always tried to remember this in my many years of management. This leads me to an assessment of myself and the countless hours I spend on my car projects with very little progress being made. Perhaps I need help or should seek a professional to assist me in meeting my objective.

I have chosen the latter and will farm out the remaining work on my roadster as I am getting nowhere in my garage. Having said that, and my concern over having someone else do the work I really want to make sure I select the correct shop or person to do the work. I am fussy and insist on quality work. Price is important, but not as important as quality. I know the extreme shops, the mediocre shops and the shops to stay avoid.

While I am searching, I will continue to do the small things and run for the parts required. Here are some shots of the progress or lack of it over the weekend.

Stay Tooned!
