It not usually something that you think about, but an important factor regarding training outcomes, is How long should a lesson be? The other perspective is ‘How long would it take to learn this?
I said previously that training is expensive, and more often than not, you may not have the time you need, to do a subject justice. Even simple, mundane tasks, can take far longer than anticipated to teach to someone learning it for the first time. Unless it’s a legal requirement, businesses will often forego training all together, just because it doesn’t move the business needle now.

Have you ever been in a car with a lunatic who just kept doing stupid ****? Have you ever seen that crash coming and simply frozen as all of the events have simply unfolded around you? Have you ever been in a situation so unstable and so out of control that if you turn away for a single moment you know that you’re in trouble?
Welcome to the Cryptoverse. Finely enough unlike financial
editor Ross Greenwood I’m not going to tell you cryptocurrencies are bad or
that you need to stay away from them. Not at all.
2020 has been a challenging year to say the least, and above all there have been a number of realities that have been exposed, as well as the hard lessons to go with them.
When restrictions about essential workers came into effect limiting the vast majority of workers from travelling and working at their places of employment – for many people the dream of working from home became an overnight reality.
Dear Mum and Dad …
No not really, but that’s probably how I’d start it if this
was a letter to them.
This letter is to all parents, and to the children too,
because we’re all … someone’s kids.
This one is a hard one to write. Why? Because I don’t have kids. And that makes it hard for me to relate to parents. I tip my cap to you all, because I like time to myself. I’m pretty self centered too. Honestly I don’t really see myself as paternal material. But anyway.
I just read recently that if you spend long enough following someone on social media you’ll learn who they truly are—they’re political alignment, they’re sense of humor, they’re beliefs etc. To an extent I find this to be true, especially when someone’s back is up to the wall, you’ll see their true nature. You’ll see what they will do to survive, and who they’ll sacrifice along the way or . . . you will see something extraordinary.
You also get to learn about people as they observe things. There are those who will watch the world go by and criticize everything around them without knowing anything about what they’re talking about, and then there are those who will blindly say that everyone is simply trying their best no matter what the outcome or effort is—and they are only two ends of the spectrum.
