I feel old!
Although I was a fairly early internet adapter (way back in the old days before the World Wide Web), I’ve been left behind. In the past 20 years of working on other things, I haven’t kept up with my computer skills. And now I’m paying the price.
I admire beautiful blogs and can’t seem to get mine to do the same thing. Adding widgets and plug ins, inserting code to fix formatting errors, even participating in blog hops doesn’t come easily. I just have to learn. But how?
I need to train myself the way I train my dog!
Take Baby Steps
Don’t expect I’ll be able to do everything right away. Take what I want to learn and divide it into small steps I can accomplish over time.
Stop meeting one goal and then just going on to the next one without pause. Recognize my accomplishment and celebrate it.
Don’t slog away at the computer like it’s purgatory. This is supposed to be fun! When I have a success (no matter how small), add a treat–a game of tug, a quick puppy video, or a snack.
Maybe I can’t do it all alone. Sometimes I’ll have to read more or ask someone a question.
Maybe if I can do these things, I’ll react to learning the way Honey does:
- with joy
- and looking forward to the next new thing I have to learn.
