Although it is not my forte, I have tried to work on a number of mechanical items over the years, from cars to electronics.
I might have enjoyed more success if I had learned the valuable lesson of getting the right tool(s) for the job and the importance of knowing my limitations.
I can see many similarities to leadership. Leaders do well to learn the importance of taking time to do whatever it takes to prepare properly and achieve the job successfully.
Being equipped with the right tools in leadership can make the difference now and eternally. Prepare and know your limitations!
