Air, are you a duck-hunter?

/ On : 22.12/ Thank you for visiting my small blog here. If you wanted to discuss or have the question around this article, please contact me e-mail at mozabani@yahoo.com

One of our newsletter readers, who works for a large
construction equipment dealer, wrote to me recently
with the following observation:

"Our dealership employs nearly 200 service technicians -
98 percent of which work in the field. The NUMBER ONE and I do
mean NUMBER ONE problem even our seasoned service techs
have, is they lack the fundamentals of elementary hydraulics.
They tend to use what I call the 'duck hunter' approach in
resolving machine problems (shot in the dark approach)".

This problem is not unique to our reader's organization.

It's widely accepted by those within the industry that
there is a widespread lack of hydraulics know-how
among personnel working with hydraulic equipment.
And it seems the story is the same everywhere in the world.

As my colleague went on to point out, the only way to make
the transition from 'duck hunter' to competence is to
acquire knowledge.

Imagine the satisfaction of being THE guy your boss
depends on to fix all hydraulic problems.

You approach complex hydraulic machines with confidence,
safe in the knowledge that you know exactly what you're doing.

And you're acknowledged by your workmates as the guy
to go to for help with problems THEY can't figure out.

Air, if you want to stand out from the crowd
as someone who HAS hydraulics know-how
and take advantage its scarcity
to get more pay, more opportunites or more business,
make a commitment to start acquiring and furthering
your knowledge today.

I'm considered an expert in this field by many.
But I can tell you this level of understanding is no more
beyond your reach than it was mine. In fact, Earl Nightingale
once suggested you can become an expert in just about
anything by dedcating one hour a day for as little
as a year to no more than three.

But how does one learn? Research has shown we assimilate
and retain information in different ways. However, there's more
to knowledge than simply being exposed to information.

What I'm referring to here is knowledge retention. It seems
our ability to retain knowledge has a lot to do with the method
of learning. Research has shown we retain 80 percent of
what we discover ourselves.

This is why my preferred method of knowledge acquisition
is through self-directed learning with the aid of
text, illustrations and videos.

Another reason I prefer this method of learning, is it
involves the accumulation of information
that can be easily referred to over and over.

To some extent, this process negates the need for retention.
I don't know about you, but when it comes to a large and complex
subject like hydraulics, I don't have enough gray matter to
retain it ALL in my head!

So to further YOUR hydraulics know-how
in a way that aids retention AND reinforces it,
you can't go past 'Hydraulics Made Easy'.

It combines conventional text and illustrations
with cutting-edge simulation videos - to not only
facilitate and enhance your undestanding,
but to also make it FUN!

Yours for better hydraulics knowledge,
