Sir Francis Bacon is quoted as saying, "Knowledge is power." Unfortunately there is a huge power drain in information technology. A large portion of IT power is untapped because of the tendency for some to be intimidated, bored or frustrated with the element of life they love to hate. There is a way to recapture the knowledge being wasted to do what it was designed to do - make life easier. There are three steps to empower yourself in the realm of information technology:
- Recognize that it is the nature of the beast that all can learn from anyone and all can teach someone.
- Decide to discover and explore.
- Enable yourself by eliminating the intimidation factor, also known as frustration.
