Today‘s global economy down turn has raised the need for the emergence of new business owners. These are not necessarily new in the work place or business environment; rather they are redirecting their potential and experience to take the bull by the horn in other to secure both their own future and that of their posterity.
There are a myriad of challenges faced by these entrepreneur.
First is deciding whether service business or manufacturing business. In choosing a business type consider your opportunities, available resources, and your comparative advantage i.e. the business that you with less stress and relatively good returns.
The second and seeming crucial thing is your goal and objective. There cannot be great business where there is no clear objective or goal. This tells you where you are going. Once you know where you are going it becomes easy to stay on course to get there. But when you don’t know where you are going any road will leaf you on.
Now you need to stop and think, how far so you want your business to go? Is it on pinnacle or somewhere in the plateau? While all birds are beautiful the peacock is colorful. Doing a good business will put you in the plateau; a commitment to excellence will place you on the pinnacle. This has nothing to do with how long a business existed; you only need to run your business by different rules. Excellence will distinct you no matter the opposition or competition.
Next on this list is an identifier either by name or logo. A name is a good description of who we are what we can achieve and something’s our beliefs. Think of a name that readily projects the business unequivocally. Something to project the uniqueness of a business the name could be of foreign e.g. Kentucky fried chicken. Lastly you will need an excellent account record. In doing this you really need to set your priorities right. Run your business with the future in view. Where you are going is very important to you. You cannot throw it away by been frivolous in your financial dealings.
Information Technology Problem Solving - The 6 Principles of Scientific Problem Solving
➺ This paper seeks to explore some six principles of scientific approach to problem solving.
➺ Often time, most problem solvers adopt techniques of guessing and shortcuts which really create more problems in problem solving.
➺ Firstly, we need to understand the real problem before we can attempt to solve it. To avoid addressing the symptoms of a challenge, rather than the root cause, proper investigations need to be conducted to define the problem. Such investigation will entail asking questions about the possible cause(s) of the problem and as well as allowing for some simple confirmation of these points. Doing this may help to eliminate likely factors for the cause of the problem.
➺ Second, we shouldn't shy away from approaching a problem that may seem complex to solve. There are always 'basic working principles ' to follow. Or, we can conduct simple internet research to proffer solution to the problem.
➺ Again, keeping and simulating the problem solving method in a simple way will make it a lot much easier to achieve.
➺ Fourthly if the problem can't be simulated, we can adopt a debugging method. This will require, first, determining where the problem is by including breakpoints at key areas. Thereafter, you may run the program in debug mode to establish which breakpoints the problem occurred.
➺ The debugging method also helps to monitor variables, values, parameters, etc. as you work through the program. However, where debugging and simulation fail, we may seek to adopt the fifth rule.
➺ Where random 'general protection' faults occur, as was the case in Windows 95 and 98, defying debugging and replication of the code, the problem solver can apply the fifth rule of analyzing the database back-end. This involves tracing what is happening on the back-end level-all the connections that were released when the application was not running, the programming faults by the developer, etc.
➺ The GUI which contains the main database providers helps you to trace or analyze the queries that are fired against the database. This also shows you when people connect, disconnect, or were unable to connect due to security violations.
➺ Finally, use the principle of fresh eyes. When solving a problem don't spend too much time before asking for assistance. Such additional thoughts may not necessarily be from some superior heads.
➺ What's important here is a fresh perspective that may spark off that which was missing by answering to a question or two from the second person? One may start seeing a silly mistake by spending hours looking at the same piece of code.
➺ Additionally, a change of environment or a bit of relaxation may ignite some fresh ideas. Sharing and exchanging ideas in relaxed atmosphere is potent to solving problems.
➺ Conclusively, it's the hope of the author that you will apply the above techniques whenever you encounter a problem. Hopefully, you will realize the advantages they offer.
In line with global trends, technology has become part and parcel of our daily lives. In comparison to the nineteen seventies and the nineteen eighties, th Technology is not confined to the sciences alone has all sectors and industries are coming up with technological trends as it suits and meet their needs and requirements.
The daily growth recorded in technological advancement today, is largely owed to the tireless efforts of researchers all over the world. People who are passionate about finding practical solutions to our daily challenges as humans through scientific methods. The power Technology wields in this day and age cannot be over- emphasized. It has eaten deep into all facets of our lives from culture, law, lifestyle, medicine to business, even the traditional art is not left out.
Tradition art has experienced a face lift and has metamorphosed into what is known has digital art. Works of art are now done on computers with the aid of various software and applications and this has increased the presence and awareness of digital art. With proficiency in Photoshop, anyone can be a digital artist. Unlike the traditional artists use cement and paint for their work, digital artists give a New look to a picture with imaging software’s and go as far as making a 3D impression.Isn’t technology amazing
Indeed, the positives of technology in the world today are enormous, not to take away the fact that it has some not so positive aspects. People no longer get together in person, they meet on line and in virtual groups. This did not help artist who relied basically on gallery shows to sell their arts.
This birthed the idea of digital art display. Artists decided to take their wares to where the traffic is the internet. We all know about this feature of technology also known as the World Wide Web. Am sure you know how information and news travels like wild fire on the internet.This spurred artists to take their sculptures and paintings to where it would be seen. Since the old gallery exhibitions didn’t really yield expected results in time past.
Some artists make money off their work by using the card swipe or coin method, which allows art lovers to view a painting or any work of art for a limited time when they swipe their credit/debit card. They also design art works for their clients and even make modification to suit individual needs and make 3D pictures that have real life feel, all these to show their creative skill set, All thanks to technology. These artists have brought prestige to their profession and opened up paths to spread their creative tentacle to their ever growing audience and earn a living while at it. Technology has brought with it great gains, digital art work is one of the many things we should thank technology for.
