There are practical steps that can be used to enhance your career. Oftentimes when focusing on how to be better in a career the focus is placed on a job that is currently being worked in. When learning how to be all you can be at welding you are taught about soldering, the proper use of the tools of the trade, and the proper techniques for completing a process. Little to no focus is ever placed on the individual doing the soldering, using the tools, or completing the process.
