I was surfing the net looking for something to post or talk about when I found this article by Dan Goldstein published via TechWhirl. It gave me a chuckle so I thought I would pass it on.
Notice one of the key terms are Training & Development that requires documentation of some form or another.
I have had to take a hard long look at how I work from home. I have come to the conclusion that I really need to learn how to focus and work on one project at a time.
I think this article was written for me; of course, that could just be my ego talking.
I have constantly and I mean constantly tried to figure out why something didn’t work for me? I still don’t have all of the answers but this article has given me some food for thought.
I read this and I couldn’t help but think of a game series that I enjoy playing created by Naughty Dog called Jak and Daxter. The first game is really simple and easy but as you move through each level the game gets more advanced. The next game builds on the fundamentals you used in the first. I still haven’t been able to beat Jak and Daxter: The Last Frontier but heights scare me even in a game.
My point is, nobody would expect a child to do algebra without learning basic math skills. Why should any other skill be any different. Yes, it may be slower but the employee, student, or customer will be less frustrated and more productive. A really quick side note: make sure to update your scenarios to suite your user needs.
What helps keep you sane when working for home?
Is there anything you would add to this list? Is there anything different you have done that has helped you achieve career success?
