      Why faster? What's the rush? Better yes, faster, maybe not. Fast leads to sloppy and forgetful.

              Haste makes waste... The faster I go the slower I am...

              Doing things better is everyone here's goal.
              I recommend taking courses at a local vocational school along with your work.

                String? What string do you use for a thick cable. What a pain... My Boss said just put a kink in the end of the cable.

                  I'm wondering what you do with the string once you make the turn?

                  This works for cameras, but for cables?

                    If you're involved in new construction, I'd recommend you memorize the sizing tables for sewer, water and gas piping found in your code book. Many other dos and don'ts can be found in your code book as well. Having them in your cranial tool box for easy reference gives you more time for working and less time for head scratching. And, fewer money and time wasting inspection related do overs.

                      Monitor your own steps.How many should it take.What should I have up a six foot ladder with me.
                      Stop...Practice thinking about how you can combine/save steps before moving a muscle.
                      It is hard for me to do when I have a bunch of looky lou's standing over my shoulder yappin' in my ear.One of the aspects of service that's a challenge for me now.

                      In construction I used to like to stand from afar and watch an employee to see how many times he would go up a ladder,in and out of a ditch,to and from the truck.Some were hilarious.I would cruise up and they would be all sweaty,dirty,huffing
                      and puffing from running around cussing like a chicken with it's head cut off.
                      May impress the chicks and homeowners bro,but your on the "B" list
