    [Skills] How Do You Develop Your Skills?
    During the early days of my career, I relied on training classes as a way to learn new skills or brush up on older skills that I haven’t used in a while. However, even with a number of exercises during the class, you don’t get enough practice time to really master a skill. Developing a work skill isn’t that different from training for a sport. This doesn’t mean that I neglect my skills development.
