Happy Virtual Design & Construction Day to you.
Do you still get that tingle every day? Do you love what you do? Are you still passionate about what you spend 8 or more hours a day doing? Do you love collaborating, BIMing, designing, modeling and sharing information with the others you care about?
Do you still love opening Revit and Navisworks every day as your fingers stroke your keyboard and you gently touch your left mouse button? Does your hard drive swell with large files as you fill your models with your big data? Is your life fulfilled with your input and output?
Look, if you're going to spend that much time in your life away from your loved ones, you better love what you're doing and make the most of it. If you're still doing CAD, it's time to lose your BIM virginity and start a new relationship with a different workflow and process.
As my son says, "sharing is caring" and BIMing is winning. Now if we could only get a 3D printer that could make models out of chocolate, the world would be perfect.
As a last thought, something that I just remembered, it was on Valentine's Day in 1997 that I woke up from a dream and instantly decided that I was going to do computer consulting. Well it's 16 years later, and I am still just as in love with technology as I was that morning, many years ago. Always follow your dreams and make them a reality.
