LEARNING A NEW COMPUTER APPLICATION.

By roameri ·
1. I get convinced that I must learn HTML.
2. Then I get convinced that I must learn all the fancy extra stuff of WORD.
3. Then its EXCEL.
4. Then its XML.
........
Why???
Because these vendors keep convincing me that I will be a better guy.
I start well but get fed up and lose concentration.
Is this the problem with others ?
Is there a course/site/book/forum om " HOW NOT TO GIVE UP ????

The course I had on how not to give up took about 18 years while growing up. That was the way my family lived. Stay the course and run the race. I think it's also called self discipline.

faradhi is also correct in always learning. You learn something (usually more) new every day or you're not trying. You can do it.
