Nobody has more fun than I with things that I see on home inspections that are not considered best practices. Sure, the line, "But I've always done it this way," comes up a lot. And some things that are not done professionally can be funny, and instructive. That's where Mr. Jay's Neighborhood and Billy Jays comes in.
But I thought that no matter what our profession, there are things out there that are done right. There are people giving their best shots. There are products that really work, and work well. And there are techniques that we can all learn from.
So I thought to start a new group on Active Rain.
When you see something done right, let us know!
When you see a new product that is doing what it's intended and has really improved our lot, take a picture and let us know!
When a new technique, service, person, business or acquaintance is doing something we can all learn from, teach the rest of us!
LET'S TRY TO FIND THE POSITIVE AND DO THE POSITIVE. AND SHARE IT!
Anyone can do it their own way, right or not.
Anyone can pull the wool over another's eyes.
Anyone can hide bad work and tarnish the Golden Rule.
But not everyone tries to employ the Golden Rule! And when they do, and you see it, or you do it yourself, let us know! Not everyone does and so when we see it happen, we need to talk it up! There are HUGE upsides to doing things right, being a professional and employing best practices, but the downside of not doing things right is much HUGER.
I for one love to see things done right! I love to see people trying their best! I love people who demonstrate that they are a true neighbor (and proximity does NOT define the word neighbor...)! Do you see the key word in those sentences...?
I'm up for it. Are you?
Join up, share with us and teach us all. Make us feel good about things!
