My New Year’s Resolution is to learn something new each day.
It doesn’t really matter what the thing is or how complicated it is, I simply need to gather new knowledge.
At the end of the day if I find myself interested in a new topic, I will continue working on it the next day. If not, I simply move on to something else. One thing that I have picked up is that I like HVAC repair. I find HVAC very interesting. My oldest son works for a heating & cooling supplier in town and he loves his job. I have never been the type of person who can repair things on their own. But, I have a lot of time now that I am retired. I have taken the time to really focus and learn how to take apart HVAC machines. I have read guidebooks, watched videos and chatted with my son about various HVAC equipment. After all of this, I decided to give it a shot for the first time. One day, I had my oldest son came over to see me & teach me how to repair the heating & cooling equipment. I had an idea on what to do, but I wanted him there in case I messed up. The process of diagnosing & being able to repair a proper heating & cooling equipment like mine was much harder & took longer than I would have ever imagined. I enjoyed the process of learning all about a new piece of machinery though. I was able to get the heating & cooling equipment working again all by myself.
