Feeling technologically idiotic?
I need an MP3 player to download audiobooks from a certain service that does not download to all players—I have spent hours on this and trying to find something affordable that will work.
A friend said do you think this stuff is too hard these days? I do! My daughter is tech-age and she doesn’t even get it.
And by the time you do decide, that piece of technology is on eBay for 99 cents and it’s on to something else. Maybe that 99-center is OK, though.
If you need to master a program at work—or a piece of hardware—or master them to GET work, first figure out what you need to know.
Assess your own skills—can you read a manual, do you need someone to explain it? How do you learn things best?
Conquer fear. Joking. That’s not possible. Dread and anger will just take its place.
Or just find a 12-year-old. Don't get roped into laser tag, though--just take it from me.
