There are times in all of our lives when we just don’t have the expert touch. This is true for me, more times than I care to recall. Ineptitude, by definition, is the lack of ability to competently perform a particular task. For example, I cannot repair or install a carburetor in a car. But I can drive any vehicle and check fluids and add the right amount. Every person has a number of skill sets developed over their lifetimes. I’ve often stated that I am a life-long learner. What’s the key to overcoming an ineptitude? Right! Find out what you don’t know, get the information and apply it.
Nobody graduates from diapers and is ready to run a marathon in their infancy. Well, I am an infant in the computer world. So I look for pertinent information on a program or application and start taking notes. Notes? Oh yes, by all means. After all, sometimes you have to review a process to get it ‘down pat’.
The neat thing is that you don’t have to stay ignorant about something you really want to learn and add to your skills. That is why I like to stand on the shoulders of giants: those who have shown the way in any particular field of endeavor. To these giants (the lovely people who write How To instructions), I say “you have my undying gratitude.” Resources, I just love resources, those step-by-step instructions that help us learn what we need to know. Thank you!
