I celebrated my dad’s birthday last month and gifted him a brand new Smartphone. I have been thinking to gift him this piece of so called “must have” thingy for a long time as he had a normal basic phone which lets him to store few information, make / receive calls and so on. Initially he was so excited. But, over a period of time, I noticed him to use the phone just to make and receive calls.
As a matter of fact, he learned about few new features that he eventually gave up as many involved their own procedures. It was easy for him to feel comfortable with those basic routine usages rather than getting used to the new addictions. Sometimes, I feel you just need to refresh your ideas and thoughts and consider adding new nice thingies that will make your life comfortable.
The same perhaps happens with software; specifically with Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress. If you are one of those who use only 10% of the standard features of this software, then tune up, there are lots that this system can offer and lots that you can do with it.
