A good set of skills

Due to my career working as an HVAC repair tech over the past twenty years or so I have been lucky to have built a very useful set of skills. While many of these skills relate directly to HVAC, many of my other skills are able to be applied in things other than just one thing. A good example of this happened only a few days ago when I was trying to teach my son how to clean up his room the right way. For over an hour when my son was supposed to be deep cleaning his room the only thing that he was actually doing was moving all of his dirty clothes and other miscellaneous items over to his closet and nightstand where he didn’t think we would be able to see it. Over my career working as an HVAC repair tech one of the things that I take a tremendous amount of pride in is attention to detail. No matter if it is working on a delicate model of an HVAC unit or trying to find the correct way to handle a customer, being able to do the little things the right way is extremely important. Fortunately after a few more hours I was able to get this point across to my son who was able to fix his mistakes from his first run at cleaning his bed. I didn’t know that HVAC would teach me so many lessons, but now that I have learned them I am proud to be able to teach them to my son as well.
