In the past and present, when trying to train anyone how to use a computer, or any kind of electronic device, I have found that it is usually the very simple steps that are left out by the so-called “computer experts” that cause most people to cry out for help.
For example; everyone has heard the joke about the person that we will call “Sally”. Sally just received her new computer at home. She excitedly took it out of the box, noticing all the cords, hardware, manuals, floppy disks, etc… Then panic set in. What in the world is she supposed to do with all of this stuff?, she thought.
So Sally called the 800 number that she found for tech support on the paperwork that she found in the box. (I will admit that over 25 years ago, I also did that when I received my very first computer. I have always found the computer tech support person on the other end of the phone to be a very patient person.) Ok, back to my story…
Of course, no story would be complete without adding that Sally was on hold for quite some time before being directed to a real “live” person. So, after hours of talking on the phone to tech support, Sally successfully had her computer all plugged up and ready to go. The machine started booting up. The sounds and lights came to life, the screen lit up. The the tech support instructed to hit ANY key. Sally looked at her keyboard, then she looked at her computer monitor, then she looked at the big box sitting beside it (hard drive), she didn’t see ANY key anywhere! Feeling somewhat stupid, she hesitantly asked the nice tech support person on the other end of the line, “where is the ANY key? I don’t see it anywhere?”.
The tech support person replied “just hit any key on the keyboard, the space bar, enter, or a letter, really just anything on the key board will work…..
Have you ever been in a similar situation? You do everything as instructed, and nothing worked because you failed to hit the (enter) key or click a button to save or enter your work and discovered that nothing was happening? As I mentioned, you did everything as instructed, well guess what? sometimes the most simple things are left out of instructions.
That is what this site is about. I have spent years training people how to use computers, software programs and devices. I personally know for a fact that it is the simple thing that is left out of the instructions that cause most people to be unsuccessful.
So here, you will find the simple steps that you need to be successful. I will continuously add lessons, so check back often.
If there is something that you need help with that is not here yet, let me know and I will do my best to add it. If you need help with your SFI Business or TripleClicks, please feel free to explore the lessons.
