As in the case of learning how to perform in any specialized context, I found there were a number of issues I was neither taught nor did I learn from life experience.  Over the course of a 50-year career that transitioned from ground-based to space-based, I came to understand that there are specific tools and values that proved vital.  Using my own journey, I shall summarize a few of the more useful, to identify and make available things and ideas that helped me with my time with NASA.
