Our perception of time is often influenced by the circumstances, events, and environment surrounding us. I recently spoke to Joe, a friend of mine who just got back to work from a two-week vacation, and when asked how his vacation went, he predictably replied, “too short”. Often in our business this same two week timespan feels like an eternity to us and our clients. Whether its waiting on permits or plan reviews from jurisdictional entities, waiting on reviews of contracts, waiting on lab test results, or waiting on Joe to get off vacation to help pick up some of the workload at work, two weeks can make you feel anxious as you stare at the sand slowly falling through the hour glass or seem as if it goes by in the blink of an eye. What can happen in two weeks? In asking an engineer this question, I offer the following answers that only an engineer would.
In two weeks, over 5,000 drivers’ licenses have issued by the Department of Motor Vehicles.
