Focusing your energy on creating a vision of what you want your life to look like will serve you well!
Having a VISION, needs to be followed up by having GOALS, once these both are achieved it will create a clearer sense of what needs to be done. Align your goals with your actions and you will streamline the game plan to get to the finish line.
Remember, if you are not living the life that you want to now, then how do you think you will live that life in the future if you are not doing anything to support those goals?
Create a Vision, Make a Plan, Do Work, Try some new things & Find the Sweet Spot!!!

As we continue the conversation of Distribution System components, we will discuss, Water Storage Facilities & various Valves.
There is much more to talk about but I have summed much of it up in a quick 20 minutes so that you can listen in on your way to work to get a little study session in.
Remember, as we are studying we want to focus our time in our notes & books for about 15-20mins. at a time to help retain the info we are reviewing. Do this at least 4-6x's per day and you will be more than prepared to smash your state exams as well as apply the learned knowledge out in the field!

Episode-3 "Leveling-Up" is a rundown of how to prepare yourself for upcoming promotions and job opportunities during the recruitment process.
I have had more job interviews than I can think of throughout my career and I obviously did not get all of them but they were all opportunities to learn more about myself and work on the things that are going to make myself more valuable & marketable to my organization and to others.
Some people are great at work and do not know how to represent themselves in an interview to highlight their strengths, and others are great at speaking but lack the experiences to get the actual work done. Your goal needs to have both strengths and continue to Level-Up!
Reminder, these are my opinions based on my experiences and they are to be taken as a positive word of advice to all of you that are trying to prepare yourself on getting to the next level in your career and/or landing your first gig in the industry.

The only way to Level-Up in your career is to Cert-Up! This is a brief rundown of how to get started with the Operator Certification Program in your state and how to prepare for your upcoming certification exam.
Once you get started with the classes and the studying it is important to keep chipping away at your certs and furthering your knowledge in water. It is more likely that you will be successful if you are repetitiously studying and taking exams than to take a break in between, ESPECIALLY if you do not pass. Do not get discouraged, Keep Going! And do not think you should settle for a cert/license that is required for your position and not chase after the one that is required of your supervisor, you would only be shorting yourself a future opportunity or advancement!
There is only one way to make a better living for yourself in this industry and that is to get your certs, education and some great experiences.... This ultimately makes you more valuable and your journey more fulfilling!
