Teaching vs. Doing

June 7, 2010

The following is a quote sent via twitter;

OH ladies in 80’s: “See that’s the difference ‘tween technicians who can, ‘do do do do’ do it like that and teachers who show you.”

If you don’t use twitter, here is the back ground, Randy Little (@littlerandy on twitter or twitter.com/littlerandy) overheard two elderly women talking about technology in a coffee shop.

In the discussion the above quote was about a technology support individual willing to teach someone, rather than just do it.

IT staffers take note.

Like the old saying; Give a man a fish, he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats forever.

In IT, the teach part should be mandatory
