  • The Forth Bridge was built by hand.  Because of its cantilever design and the restrictions of the site, it had to be constructed from relatively small components, each weighing no more than a ton.  So the structure was created from a patchwork of steel plates riveted together, by hand, by teams of men and boys from the shipyards.  That meant it took 7 years to complete.

    It's been standing for 133.

    When we contemplate building something bigger than ourselves, we often get overwhelmed by the difficulties of the job and the effort it will take.  And so we miss out on the big payoff.

    Imagine your business still standing after more than a century.

    It could if you engineered it that way.

    Ask me how.
