Sometimes a man has got to know his limitations.
As part of a little business venture, I'm putting together a new website. It has some tweaks that are a bit different that most sites. A buddy gave me a quick lesson on how to set it up.
Maybe too quick . . . should have taken better notes . . . and learned how programing is done in the 21st century. Back in my day it was all ones and zeros, and sometimes we didn't have ones. Plus, I wasn't very good at it back in the day either.
Please, don't give me a bunch of advice on which programs to use or youtubes to watch. I broke down and got my buddy to help me remotely. Since tech support is kinda his day job, he's really really good at it.
I also got to realize how poky my computer is. For now it's going to have to do until the new business brings in some money. Eventually everything will come together.
Good thing I've some smart and helpful friends. One of the big lessons I've had to learn in this life is to ask for help. For someone who's as independent as I am it was a really tough lesson to learn. Over the years I've sometime struggled alone or did without. At my age I don't have time for that anymore. Too much left to do in the years left to me.
Someone once put it perspective for me. He said, “Remember how good it feels to be able to help someone?”
“Yes,” I said.
“Why don't you let someone help you once in a while so they can have that good feeling too.”
