I’ve had the privilege of providing computer support and computer training for several truly successful individuals in various industries. With each encounter I try to learn what each of them has in common. I’ve observed that successful people have a clear understanding of who they are, including their strengths and weaknesses. And they are always willing to hire experts to ensure important tasks are completed correctly, especially in areas where they are personally limited or inexperienced.
The other common thread that I have found is clear fast decision-making and filtering of information. With each decision, emotion is not a factor. Total cost over time vs. upfront costs matter, and the overall value of a given choice matters. Successful filtering of information is simply the process of quickly discarding those things that are not important in order to focus entirely on decisions that are.
Picking up tips and methods in the areas of decision making and maintaining focus has benefited me in the way that we provide computer support because each individual and each company has unique needs that are constantly evolving. For example, the decision to replace or repair your computer might be biased by the age of the computer the functional role of the computer, the licensing that needs to be purchased to bring it to current standards and the hardware that may need to be purchased. But at the end of the day, computers are a tool for businesses. And we have to make the wisest decision regarding cost, timeline and business effectiveness. All other considerations are moot. As we aid businesses with computer support tasks, computer selection and related decision-making, we strive to deliver results that are of the highest value. That is, a balance between cost-sensitivity and desired results.
Our experience has shown that companies who invest up front in a computer setup that is clean and well thought out are more successful in the long run. They spend less time and money struggling with computer-related issues on a day-to-day basis. They are simply able to be more productive because each of the computers is fast and functional and the need for ongoing computer repair becomes negligible.
