Go Backwards to Move Forward

I work backwards in many areas of my life. I love computers. I love learning new software. So you can imagine that I have computer books. This is one method to use when learning new programs:

1. Go to the index in the back of the book and look up a topic. Say you’re learning Microsoft Word and want to know how to center a heading on a page. Go to the Index and look up “Centering”.

2. Look at all the pages referenced on the topic and decide which one gives you the information you’re looking for.

3. Highlight the information most valuable to you and turn down the page.

4. Turn back to the Index and highlight the page number that was most helpful to you.

Over the years this has saved me lots of time. If I haven’t use a particular feature in a long time, I can go right to what I’m looking for by using the index and the highlighted information in the book.
