Teach others, don’t do it for them

Whenever there’s an opportunity to share you knowledge and teach others some of what you know, take it. Share knowledge as you would want others to share theirs with you. Teaching people how to do things on their own helps both them and you. It helps them feel good about themselves by expanding their skill-set and at the same time it reduces the number of somewhat repetitive questions you may be getting day after day.

Obviously, you can’t force them to learn if they don’t want to or if they are in a rush at that particular time, but you can always provide it as an option.

Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day; show him how to catch fish, and you feed him for a lifetime. – Unknown

Then again, not that you should, but you could be more of a Ron Swanson type 😉
