“Up with the sun, out with the wind….they always said I was crazy…..”.
Crap, can’t download pics….ill ad them later. Yes, I’m not at the shop….I have a very important meeting this morning on something I’ve been working on for some time. Lemme get it digested before I spew my guts but I think folks will like it.
Here it is 7am with the place opening at 8, I knew I could sit at the coast…watch the sunrise and just maybe I could get me phone working…..life is good!
Yesterday was another big outa town confab on this new thing ….. Seat time in the Suzuki isn’t quite the same as with the motorhome but listening to every squeak of a proud beast with 500,000 on its odometer is a bit sketchy…….anything can happen at any time, right?
I guess I can announce this now…..we’ve been testing a new concept….to me……in our labor flow. After 20 years of head down seems like every day endlessly working to keep everything going and put in the labor hours……wait for it……all 10 guys here have agreed to reorganize labor coming in at 8am, 4 days working 10 hour days…… In other words we have progressed into a 4 day work week.
You know, when you make the decision everyone work just a little more effective pushing for that 3 day weekend….and you know its been found to work. Our productivity over the past 3 weeks of tuning up has increased production over 20%! I’m serious….how did that happen? Guess the squirrels turn the wheel faster when there’s a bigger prize!
So for whatever reason, at least thru the summer with these long days, we will be at the shop Mon. thru Thurs.. You know me and the guys, we’ll probably b there…breaking the old habit of selling my soul every day is hard to break and this will give us an extra day if we need it.
And of course I have an appointment at the shop this and next Friday….as Janie laughs at me…..but we gotta try….and so we are.
I found the act of not working when so many others are…..I just wanna reach out and shake them loose. I have positive hopes this will greatly help out output and give us all an actual life! Stay tuned.
In sitting in a parking lot at a fancy hotel looking over the banana river….sun getting ready to melt suntan lotion from all those tourists… as James Buffet talked about. Its the first day of summer in Florida….time to crack open that furnace door and bathe in the glorious heat! Come on down, the grill is ready!
Gonna take a 30 min. Nap before I hava talk. I’ll put up some pics later today…..see ya then
