RE: Common sense studio sessions

in Self Improvement.last month

I think a lot of the loss of common sense also has to do with an inability for people to look at many techniques to do the same thing. Almost all jobs have rules to follow, and when you train with only one person you end up using their way and means of doing the job, you become a clone of your instructor. When you train with two people you see two different techniques, (if they learned the job from someone else). You are then able to combine accept and reject parts of the instruction and build your own technique.

It doesn't matter what job a person is doing there is always on-going education to stay current in your field of work. People are so afraid of looking stupid in front of co-workers even when new that they will go on-line and search before asking a coworker, "Why do you do it that way"? They miss the opportunity to fine tune their own technique and maybe to make their job a little easier and less stressful.

Yes - absolutely. Specialized, purpose-built tools for everything.

It is common in the workplace for someone new to be indoctrinated early as those with experience "already know" how to do it, and they have been doing it the same way for years - despite new techniques, materials and processes being available that they have never heard of.
