Have you ever picked up your smartphone to text someone to ask them something like what the weather was?
Have you ever called someone from your smartphone to ask what the date of Memorial Day (or any other holiday) is?
Have you ever walked down the hall at work to ask if the “i before e” thing is a hard and fast rule?
Why didn’t you use your smartphone for that? I don’t think we forget that we have them. I think we’re often too lazy to use a tool that has many of the answers we want. So, instead of looking to the internet with ease, we want someone else to do it for us.
I’m guilty of it too.
Make professional development a priority.
