Learning Curve

Today has been a revelation for me. I use to think I was a smart person. I always made good grades in school. I was always one of those students who picked up what ever was being taught the first time around and would read while the teacher was explaining it for the umpteenth time for the ones who were struggling. Now I know what it’s like to struggle to learn something. At first I was beginning to believe I was just stupid…sigh. It has taken me seven months to begin to feel comfortable with my digital camera (note I said beginning). I was starting to give myself a really tough time about my own learning curve when it came to technology, then it dawned on me why my learning curve was so different. In school I had teachers showing me every step of the way what I needed to know and now more often than not I’m on my own with nothing but trial and error to do the teaching. How funny is that? Einstein had trouble in school and was a genius when it came to trial and error. I did well in school and get so frustrated I want to do crazy irrational things when I have to learn by trial and error. I guess it wouldn’t be so bad if I was trying to learn the technology just for fun but alas, I need to make some money from all this…so I have no choice but to keep plugging away at it. Any of you techno smarties out there who don’t mind giving a hand to a very slow learner let me know and I will worship at your fountain of knowledge.
