Graduating with a HVACR Diploma and leaving school I thought I knew it all, well, that was not the case. Its not until you have to clime a 30 foot ladder covered in ice at 0F Ambient then trucking through 3 feet of snow on a rubber membrane flat roof for 200 feet then finally getting to the unit and realizing that at that point in my life I hoped that when I opened that door on that unit that the fault would be something easy, I remember thinking to myself, please just be something easy, please. Well it was just a broken belt and what do ya know, there was a new shiny spare below the fan staring me right in the face. From that point at the start of my career I realized the horrible feeling of intimidation that new experiences have on new tradespeople. My first Journeyman told me, "If you don't learn at least one thing a day in our trade, you will fall behind" From that lesson forward I always take initiative to learn from my mistakes, LISTON to the old pros and always have respect for people that take the time to teach.
