Why We Do What We Do

Why We Do What We Do Why We do it This Way “Why?” might be a common enough question. However, when was the last time you stopped what you were doing and really asked it? Why do you do the work that you do? Why do you live the life that you do?  We’ll be honest; the...

All week we have been celebrating our Engineers for National Engineers Week. We picked a cross section from our companies and asked them what inspired the to become an Engineer. We conclude this series with a feature on Justin Holt.

Let’s see what Justin has to say.

“I credit my dad and grandfather with inspiring to take the path I’ve taken. They didn’t nudge me to the sciences per se but they were very supportive of me when I first floated the idea of studying engineering. Yet, when I think about it, they taught me to be technical and prudent in my observations of the everyday. I fondly remember my grandfather teaching me the physics of a curveball, for instance.

They didn’t talk about work often but I remember being fascinated with the blueprints they brought home. My dad, an engineer, my grandfather, a land surveyor; they both had a use for that blue paper. As a kid, looking at those prints, I made my first jump in logic; you can write something down on paper and turn it into something that stands on its own in 3 dimensions. Not only that but you can use those ideas to help people.”
