Technology is an amazing tool. Gone should be the days of any person saying “I don’t know how to” about any topic. At our fingertips and disposal is a limitless amount of knowledge on virtually any topic we could wish for. Beginners can quickly advance to experts by doing the right research in what used to take years. Sure, we might not earn our Ph.D. but we can become pretty darn educated if we actually try to find the right knowledge.
And excuses roll on. “I didn’t know how to do that thing.” “I can never figure out how to XYZ.” Well, many others have done it already. And many people make a living documenting those things that they accomplished.
Hell, some people provide the knowledge for free for the greater good of the world.
Take, for instance, if you’d like to change your hairstyle. You’ll hop online and research new hairstyles and then give it a whirl. The compliments roll in, “Wow, I love what you’ve done with your hair!” What a great feeling.
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with wanting a new hairstyle. The argument could be made, however, that if the rest of life is crumbling, hair is the least of our worries.
Apply the same dedication to a new communication style, trying to read body language, or trying to save a relationship that is faltering. Perhaps we need to deal with a difficult co-worker or boss. Or maybe we would like to take our hobby to a full-blown passion and become an entrepreneur. People have done it and people will continue to do it.
A lot of the time it starts as simple as “www.” Then, you can open yourself up to the world of good or bad. But choose the good. There are books, magazines, web pages, blogs, podcasts, PDF’s, video chats, and more.
