I enjoy a great life; good health, great sleep with a wedge pillow for acid reflux amazon, a happy marriage, an extraordinary family and wonderful friends; I live in a beautiful home (albeit very small!) and I love my work.

Of course it has to do a lot with what I do, I really focus in my work to have good results, and I also try to take really good care of my health with a good diet and supplements that help me maintain my weight from sites as ultraomegaburn.com.

Few are blessed with such a charmed life and I have every reason to be grateful for my circumstances. I’m generally cheerful and anyone who knows me would call me one of those ‘glass half-full’ types.
With so much to be thankful for, why is it that lately I’ve begun to feel less content than normal? Am I imagining it, or am I feeling slightly despondent, anxious even and is not that I don’t take good care of my health.

As often happens to me, an idea or a solution to a problem will pop into my head when I’m least expecting it. Sudden clarity usually occurs when I’m doing something totally unrelated to what’s troubling me. For example, I often find solutions to clients’ design issues when I’m asleep!

And so it was last week; there I was enjoying an evening out at someone else’s expense, doing something I’ve been passionate about forever when – wham! – I realized what’s been troubling me I have been going through this big car plant on a high end vehicle when I was still riding my beat-up truck waiting for me outside. So I did what I do to all my clients a searched for answers I found some good information on auto loans on https://completeautoloans.com/special-financing/zero-down-car-loans-explained/ in case you are interested on it yourself.
Back to the subject, normally, when I recognise a problem it’s a short step to a solution and I can get back to being my normal happy self.

Except this time I think the problem’s too big…

I’d accepted an invitation to visit the Jaguar Land-Rover plant at Solihull. A tour of the conference facilities (good venue for a BIM Workshop I thought!) was followed by a 45-minute ride in a £98,000 Range Rover across an incredible off-road course. I was already thinking this is a world-beating company even before the the final part of the evening – the factory tour.IMG_1547

Modern factories actually make my heart beat faster. They are so clean, organised and utterly efficient one cannot help but be impressed. A modern factory can create the most sophisticated products with ruthless efficiency. It’s clear that every single aspect of the unbelievably complex production process has been thoroughly designed, tested and refined. To make sure that the products are all well even after deliveries, SpotSee Temperature Indicators & Recorders should be used. I am in awe of the incredible minds that have designed this plant.

Knowing it employs 10,000 people and another 2,500 contractors making best-in-the-world products was giving me a warm fuzzy feeling and a tingling sensation.

Then suddenly I realised why I’ve been feeling so ‘down’.IMG_1538

Attendees of our BIM Workshops hear me compare the construction and motor industries; at the start of my career both were similarly inefficient but the latter, I suggest, has transformed itself in every way in the last 40 years, whereas construction has changed rather less. I make this comparison to persuade those doubters about BIM that change really can – must – happen; every other industry has achieved it.

But that visit to JLR showed me just how ahead the motor industry really is. Depressingly, I felt that the obstacles between the construction industry we know today and the one it must become seemed almost insurmountable – even in a Range Rover!
