Not Like Everybody Else


by Randy Moody

Sharepoint 2010 Training
I’m not like everybody else.

Take restaurants for example. When I go into a restaurant, I want to sit at a table, not in a booth.   Recent studies show that everybody except me wants a booth. In fact, if it weren’t for the fact that you can’t push booths together to make one REALLY BIG booth (“Eisenstein, party of 16.”), tables might disappear from restaurants altogether!



And then the glass of water. When did a wedge of lemon hanging on the lip of the glass become mandatory? I like water-flavored water, not lemon-flavored water. I ask for “ice water, no lemon, please,” and if they bring it to me with lemon, I want a fresh glass, not just the same one with the lemon removed.

And I don’t use a straw. And I usually don’t like the sandwich just the way it is. “Sure, I can make that without honey mustard and with extra mushrooms, sir.  We can have that ready for you Tuesday. And that’ll be two dollars extra.”

I’m not like everybody else.

But here’s the thing:
You’re not like everybody else either!

I have a songwriter friend (remember, I live in Nashville) who puts it this way:
“Everybody’s different from the way we all are.
It’s not that we’re all weird, it’s just there’s no such thing as par.”

We’re all unique, with different personalities, different preferences, and different quirks.
At PremierPoint Solutions, we get that. And that changes our approach to classroom instruction in three significant ways:
  1. Not everybody learns the same way. So our classes are crafted to accommodate the diverse learning styles of our students. We want to make sure you get it.
  2. Not everybody learns at the same pace. So we make sure each student is able to keep up.
  3. Not everybody is interested in learning the same things. Students come with a variety of expectations, so we try to meet as many as are reasonable without getting sidetracked.
Our personal interest in your particular learning needs and learning style are a significant part of what makes our SharePoint training so effective.

Because you’re NOT like everybody else.
