Always Learning

As one of the year’s biggest mileposts approaches, here are some of the things I’ve learned so far in 2014:

  • How to reset the DNS on my computer.
  • A phone call frequently delivers a better result than an email.
  • Instagram>Vine.
  • An organization’s level of customer service often depends more on the individual you’re dealing with than on organizational culture.
  • Facebook’s targeted ads often hit the wrong target, based on the misguided sponsored content I’ve seen in my personal feed.
  • Even the world’s best communicators can have typos.
  • Digital content (especially photos and videos) must be backed up.
  • A great thing about cats as pets is they don’t bark.
  • Even if the road less traveled gets you to your destination later, you’ll likely encounter fewer tractor-trailers.
  • Streaming music services present a more serious threat to AM and FM radio than satellite radio does.
  • The ability to tell a story in an entertaining way is one to be treasured.
  • If you don’t ask, the answer is always no.
  • Sometimes the most useful key on my computer keyboard is “delete.”
  • You can’t trust everything you read on Wikipedia, but it can be an amazing resource.
  • The public gathering spots that don’t provide free Wi-Fi are missing the boat.
  • You can’t trust everything you read on Twitter, but it continues grow as a vital source of information.
  • Even bad days must be savored and appreciated. Life is precious.
