12 Signs You Suck at Repair

November 15, 2021


 There are always going to be more things than we can solve or repair. We can always learn, however, to be humble enough to admit our weaknesses.

The "triad" of repair is to start with fixing things, move on to fixing them again, and then keep going until we've finally reached our goal.

Repair is the process of changing your mind about something, and its main job is to allow you to see the world in a different way. We've all had times when we've been stuck on some problem (or even completely lost) or have the feeling that something is missing from the world around us. We don’t really know why, but we feel a particular way about the problem. We think something is wrong with it, and we think we can fix it.

When I first started working in a repair shop in the mid-'80s,

I remember making fun of the customers that would come in and say "no, I don't know what happened, but I've had the same car for five years and there's still something wrong with it." There was no way I could know if that was true, but it made me realize that there are a lot of things wed rather not know.

It’s all too common for repair shops to take their clients for granted. We don’t know why we have a problem with an automobile, let alone how to fix it, but we’re still willing to try to fix it. (Yes, this is a real thing.) We don’t try to fix “all the things”, but rather fix the things that are the most important to us.

It’s important to note that a lot of the things that are supposed to fix our cars are not always going to work for us.

They can be the wrong thing, or they can take a long time, or they can not work at all. Even the best of repairs sometimes fail to fix issues.

First of all, this happens to us all. Even the best cars are not perfect. Even if you can fix the problem, it may be that the repair itself was not the problem. It may be something else that’s wrong. We need to fix the problems we perceive as the most important in our lives so we can move forward. I think most people think that if they fix their car, they’ll be able to get on with their lives.

The problem is that fixing things that don't work is a lot like having a bad toothache.

Sometimes, even though we think it's the most important thing in our life, it's not. First, we need to know what the problem is. Then we need to fix it. If we fix the problem, it then becomes much harder to fix the bad toothache.


Many of us have a hard time fixing things because we see them as more important than we really are. For example, if we fix our car, we usually think that it will make our life better because it will make us better driver. But often, we just end up with more problems. A car accident, for example, can happen in the blink of an eye. We need to look at the problem from every angle and see if we can figure out why it happened.
