Simultaneous vs Incremental

Posted by Tim Murphy on 10 AM

Most of us have been trained to operate incrementally.

Do one thing and then move on to the next thing

and so on and so on….

This is a very linear way of thinking. 

It seems logical doesn’t it?

However there is another concept that you may want to consider …

Instead of accomplishing things incrementally - You could take on a simultaneous mindset.

This is the mindset of people who are serious about accomplishment.

Have you ever heard of the “Putting Points on the Board Method?"

Posted by Tim Murphy on 12 PM

It is a technique to help you get going and observe what you are doing in order to accomplish and end result.

Instead of just writing down your goals and relying on your good intentions - you turn it into a process and a measurable system.

Here is the way it works … it is incredibly simple.

#1. Define what it is that you want to accomplish.

#2. Each day, record the meaningful actions you took that will cause the desired result.

#3. At the end of the week - summarize all that you did to “put points on the board” towards the desired result.

#4. At the end of the month review the actions and measure the end result.

Rigging Supplies: New Model Speeds Delivery, Selection

Meeting construction deadlines and reducing downtime are critical whether the job site is a high-rise building or a highway infrastructure project. To safely and efficiently move heavy equipment and building supplies across the worksite requires not only cranes but also a variety of specialty lifting, pulling and tie-down products to control and secure the load.

At any time, progress on a construction project can come to a grinding halt when something unplanned occurs. For instance, a piece of equipment may need to be installed, repaired, or replaced — and specific equipment, such as a crane sling of a certain type, dimension, or construction must be available immediately to get the job done. 

More frequently, purchasing rigging equipment is left to the last minute, often because it is an afterthought, or because it is unclear what specifications the rigging requires for the job. Nevertheless, with the project deadline looming, site supervisors cannot waste time querying suppliers that cannot deliver the goods right away.

Choosing the right Ratchet Tiedown Straps(ratchet straps) for your application is extremely important. This selection is especially important when searching for best ratchet straps for heavy cargo; you want the best straps for your specific application and the type of loads involved.

When choosing straps, you also want to consider the different modes of transportation, as well as specific challenges.
