Directions…to read them or not. Should that even be a question? Assemble something incorrectly, cross the street on a red light, get lost….why take a chance. Directions are there for a reason.
We have been taught to follow directions since we were young students. They help guide us to find the answers we need, how to do something, and what questions we may need to ask to gain more in-depth information. They also help get things done quicker and eliminate back and forth or rework. Why would you pay extra for Bluetooth in a car and then not read how to set it up. Directions teach you how to do something you are not familiar with, how to use a new product or get to an unfamiliar destination. Following a map, a guided trail, a recipe or a product manual; are all great examples of directions we follow as part of our daily routine.
So when you purchase a new product or online training tool, directions are there to help you learn how to navigate it quickly and get the most out of what you purchased.
Take the time to read and follow directions to become familiar and knowledgeable on what you just spent hard earned money on.
