This year I have been at almost 0 field time. Seems a lot of people are window shopping systems because of the drought and I spend 2-3 full days on bids.
I try to keep an unpredictable schedule so that I "pop up" at job sites randomly. Although I have great crews, it is always good to just pull up un annouced a few times a week.
Lean and mean has always been the way I run things. If they are coming back from a day of maintanence with smiles, and joking around it is time to cut the fat. I need a small smile and sweat to know they are working hard.
