One thing I love about the Dewey decimal system is that it really pushes you to be a good researcher. You can’t give up easily. You have to be a very patient person and you also have to know how to connect the dots.
While there is a tremendous amount of rationality and predictability baked into the Dewey decimal system, it is far from perfect. You may be thinking that the skills that you use for this type of system is really impractical in this day and age. After all, we now have Google and interconnected computer network systems. Why screw around with the Dewey decimal system?
Well, the skills that you build up when researching for books indexed by this system can actually carry over. I know that sounds crazy. I know this is probably the first place you’ve heard that, but it really helps you to be a better researcher.
The main reason why a lot of people looking for products on the internet end up with the wrong products is because they are sloppy researchers. I know that sounds harsh. I know that even sounds judgmental, but it’s the absolute truth.
Sloppy researchers allow themselves to be desperate. They think they have to make a decision right here right now. They let their sense of urgency get the better of them and this increases the chances they will make the wrong call. This happens all the time actually.
When you’re a sloppy researcher, you just jump on to the first search result. You don’t look at context, much less your needs. This is why a lot of people are disappointed. They order stuff and they end up having to return that item. Why go through that process? Believe me, if you buy the wrong product and you have to return it, you have lost out already.
You may be thinking to yourself, “How can that be since I still get my money back?” Well, not quite. You paid in a more expensive form than money. What could be more precious than money? It should be obvious. Your time is your most important asset. Guard it with your life.
Unfortunately, that’s the kind of hard currency, so to speak, that you will be spending when you’re hassling with returns. Why not avoid this drama once and for all? If you are on the market for the right baby strollers, use your Dewey decimal skills.
In other words, when you get a listing from Google, go through the different websites, look for directories to cross reference that information and then you will get to the right solution. This way, you can line up all these different options and filter them based on what’s important to you.
What are you interested in? What problems are you seeking to resolve? What kind of features do you think would maximize the comfort of your baby? This is how you end up with baby strollers that are worth the money.
