Thoughts:

I rely upon my farming and ten years military experience more than anything else. I have to know a little about a lot and need to improvise and adapt to any situation quickly and efficiently. Not all repairs and upgrades are straightforward; the creative and unconventional approach often provides the better solution. Sometimes priorities get blurred, but labs (and by default, students) come first.
