How do you learn then ?
Not only with their computers and technologies, but also self destructing the logical side of their brains, which is responsible for the “WHY” questioning. When you follow the orders blindly to reboot a system or performing a defined set of action to fix a problem, you are programming yourself not to be a good employee but rather a machine.
Your creativity, your innovations, your logical thinking & rational reasoning capability is what makes you a good employee. Hence it got me questing WHY did we loose it ? WHY explain technology when the basics are unclear ? WHY wait for accidents, endangering your product, your people, your company in the process?
Now I’m a firm believer of “Desperate times Desperate measures” but don’t get me wrong here,I am also a firm believer of “You cant build a Great Building on a Weak foundation”
- So here’s a thought do what your doing, but make sure you have a justification for yourself why your doing what your doing ?? .
- This applies to who are reading this article and trust me, it works across all domains.
A very humble friend used to keep telling me. “Kruti padhai karo padhai ??” Translated in english "Kruti please study". This was every time I approached him for an immediate fix to a technical problem. And my reaction was pretty much similar to yours, when your reading this. "Dude I’m done with college and school days, give me the answer already, how to solve this, times ticking"
And I never got my answers till I did my homework and asked him better questions. Yes I did feel stranded in the moment, but it was not so bad. I researched, I learnt. The right way not being spoon fed and performing programmed actions
That was not a bad answer mind you, it was just a bad question. I did get my answers, when I asked him the right questions. Right questioning came after understanding why things work the way they work. Over the years I have understood the importance of WHY’s and till date I do thank my friend to where it led me. Hell, we still work together very proudly ...
In each of us lies that genius who can explain the most complicated architecture or technology in these simple basics. Happy learning happy questioning
