Some of this post forms the basis of the About SilverBear Consulting page.
First and foremost. This site is primarily aimed at a very small segment of the world. Primarily it is meant to serve learners (and everyone is a learner in some aspect of their life) in the Capital Regional District of British Columbia, Canada.
Once upon a time the world was populated with things that worked in a way that was reasonably intuitive to the end user. People who were born and raised during that time are now faced with things that could just as easily work by magic as by technology. The successful approach to coping in this new world is the same as the successful approach to problem-solving and coping with change. After the crying, yelling or whatever other outburst is done, we need to accept that over our lifetimes we have successfully and repeatedly learned new things. If we can take our brains as far back into out childhoods as we can manage we can access that part of our lives when learning was our first and foremost task and the joy of our lives.
If you can you remember that time, bring as much youthful enthusiasm and wonder as you can muster to the tasks of learning how this digital world works. It is not the world we envisioned as we were growing up, but it’s the one we have and we need to learn to succeed in it.
