My Basic Philosophy
1) Perform work safely and don’t take unnecessary risks.
2) The goal should be to complete a project as efficiently as possible; not to make a career out of studying one project.
3) Always do what’s right, that way you don’t need to look over your shoulder and wonder if past transgressions are going to catch up with you.
4) Alway’s keep the client’s best interest in mind (everything else will take care of itself).
