Many real good response. I am curious, though, on what skills one didn’t know they would need at the start and discovered they had to learn that one wouldn’t immediately think they had to know in the beginning. I particularly like the comments made about developing a skill for visualization and measuring without a ruler or tape. Those come by experience and were not immediately accessible at the beginning. I am assuming you are talking about measuring a project by components that are sized against each other Gene? I have a friend that measures by the width between thumb and forefinger. He knows it is exactly 9 inches and could accurately measure out a space for an object by using his hand.
