Knowing What You Want
I find my trips to department stores a bit time consuming, you start in one department and see the pretty shiny things in the other, the next thing you know its two hours later and you have a box of birthday cake Oreos going … hmm I don’t need this. It’s ideal to know what you want, grab it and go straight to the check out. The same can be said of the internet in many ways it’s good to know what you want, not knowing what you want tends to lead you to browse web pages and click links. The more links you press, you wander further away from the secure website you started at and end up in a sketchy part of the internet. The big difference is, you won’t leave with odd flavored Oreo’s your wife wants, you will leave with programs installed on your computer that want to steal all of your information. The internet is a mysterious and fun place, but it is a good idea to have a goal in mind and not wander aimlessly.
