…because I need you to assemble IKEA furniture!
In today’s day and age, it is very difficult to come across a task in which has never been attempted, never been documented. As such, there lies very little reason for one to make mistakes, considering the instructions are but a ‘google search’ away.
The following is a simple assessment to test ones capability of accurately following instructions. Read all instructions before proceeding with answers. Nothing is stored or cached anywhere but locally – feel free to check the source. Good luck!
Usually, instructions are placed with a helpful state of mind. When an end user misinterprets, or even ignores instructions, it tends to result in their own detriment.
It may seem as a surprise, but many individuals of society today do not feel the need to follow instructions. In the case of tech support, reading a products’ manual is a simple method in ensuring long product life, and short frustrations at the local fix and repair. This negligence for instructions can lead to devastating events if build codes aren’t followed, or if chemical warnings aren’t heed.
In fact, reading over EVERY instruction would have saved you several minutes then tackling them like a shopping list.
Despite the solid evidence over the importance of following instructions, it sometimes bodes well NOT to. Creating your own path and method for accomplishing a task may be the only way to reach maximum efficiency. Heck, your deviating from the norm may result in a new and interesting approach to the same problem! At the end of the day, it’s up to you to choose how you approach a problem. Choose wisely!
