RE: Lack of Drafters

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Russ,
It's difficult for some people to admit their limitations. Recognizing
the strengths of others and learning from them is a benefit - not a
liability. I've never had a difficult time admitting my ignorance - and
because of this I think I have become a better engineer for it.

Dennis ---

I really started learning the practical side of structural design the
day
I started telling framers/formers/iron workers "I'm the damn fool
engineer - what do you think of this design?"   It was an epiphany.
