Have you ever been in awe of someone who seems to know a lot of answers to questions you have? Or been amazed by someone who is an expert in something and through experience and study seem so at ease with what you see as a complex subject, but they seem to know like the back of their hand? There is a very logical and simple reason that these ‘experts’ know their subject matter as easily as you know 2 + 2 = 4. Everything is easy when you know it!!
Seems like a very simple concept, but think about it for a moment. Think about what you are a specialist in now and what it took to get to where you are now. Chances are it took hard work, determination, and most importantly a passion for that particular area in which you excel. Whether it’s how to design a proper landscape for your clients or break down and repair the mowers on maintenance crew, it all started with an interest and thirst for knowledge. Sometimes it’s out of necessity, like my only truck broke down and I’m out of business until it is back up and running. Or it generates from a passion and interest like plant grouping style and horticultural knowledge.
For me it all started with irrigation design and expanded from there. I have been a Certified Irrigation Designer since 1994, and while I have taught many classes and done hundreds of irrigation designs, but I didn’t stop there. I wanted to learn more than irrigation and be an expert in other facets of our industry as much as possible, so I studied, attended seminars and webinars on a variety of subjects from landscape lighting to business and everything in between, and I still have a long way to go! I believe in the old adage that if you are not moving forward, you are falling behind.
