What does it take to create the longest trans-oceanic bridge in the world? In the case of the 35km long Hangzhou Bridge in eastern China it takes a team of 600 experts 10 years planning, a 10000 strong workforce constructing it over 4 years and an additional year of testing before it’s deemed ready: in short, a significant investment of time, money & effort.
Are you hoping to create something of lasting significance? Something that goes beyond the everyday, perhaps creating a legacy for future generations? Nothing of such great importance is achieved without significant investment of resources – your time, your effort, perhaps even your money. The Hangzhou Bridge was built with an intended lifespan of 120 years, stress-tested to withstand some of the world’s biggest tides, typhoons and collisions from ships.
Plan with a long-term view. Build to withstand all that will come against it. Create lasting significance.
