Zen’s thought of the day:
“I only work on boilers”
“I only work on chillers”
“I only work on……”
Here’s what we have to say about the “I only work on” mindset-
“Your an expert on one? You’re valuable to one”
“You’re an expert with two? You’re valuable to a few”
“You know them all? You’re the one they’re gonna call”
Your specialty may be boilers, chillers, rooftops, whatever. But always remember; chillers and boilers won’t accomplish squat without pumps.
Oh, your rooftop is part of a VAV system? Sorry, I only work on rooftop units.
Any diagnostic technician worth their salt needs to have a well rounded knowledge of all the components in a system.
It’s great to specialize in something, but don’t pigeonhole yourself or you’ll always be dependent on others.
Never stop learning my friends, never stop learning.
