Many of us in the construction industry want to "be-our-own-man/woman." This often leads to us working long hours to climb the ladder and get ahead. Working hard is a good thing, and necessary in our field, but take the time to master your current responsibilities (and stretch yourself a little with some new ones) before trying to get to the next level. The result is that you will be much better equipped to handle the new role when you get there, meaning better quality of work, less stress, and ultimately, better home life. Most of us will make it to that Project Manager or Project Superintendent role at some point. If you take five more years, thats a drop in the bucket compared to your 40-year career. And you'll have 5 more years of quality work that your reputation is tied to. Basically, be patient and focus on the work in front of you.
