My Grandfather worked a variety of odd tasks in his life.
He left the navy as a marine mechanic as well as stayed in that job for a number of years before becoming a chef. When he was sick of the food industry, he went to school to learn programming. Since this was the 1977s, he was in Silicon Valley during the first tech boom as well as he made a killing in just a few short years before doing the same 10 years later. He told me that it’s great to have odd interests, however urged me to get great at least one or multiple skills because it’s not better being a “Jack of all trades, however a master of none.” It took years for this statement to finally settle in, however now I realize exactly what he meant. I became proficient in pre-law classes in university as well as finally decided to be a lawyer. Although I have other work skills, I suppose set in life in regards to figuring out what I want to do with our life professionally. As much as I understood this with myself, I have been too forgiving with friends as well as people I hire for one thing or another. I had a great handyman that was proficient with carpentry as well as plumbing, however entrusting our Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C proposal to that guy was a stupid mistake on our part. Even if you have a little bit of heating as well as cooling experience, it will never match that of a great certified Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C worker. Well, I should have expected the worst to happen, because the guy ended up frying our compressor by using the wrong refrigerant. And because he’s not a certified worker, he voided the warranty on our Heating, Ventilation as well as A/C system.
