Ever since I was a young man my father always told me:
“The best way for you to learn something is to accept the challenge to teach someone”
Teaching was never on my list of strenghts. I ran away from it the best I could until years ago, where I learned that the above statement was in fact true and I started to lose the fear of public speaking. It is only when you try to teach someone you find out the little details we are still missing.
Recently I started a similar challenge, not because I was asked to, but because I offered myself to strengthen the knowledge on both sides, the one who teaches and the one who learns. Its a “win-win situation”. A “customized training” to a small group of employees about the fundamentals of routing and the OSPF protocol up to CCNP level.
So… It’s now time to find out a bit about what I still know and refresh whatever has already run away.
Back to the basics!
“Knowledge is nothing unless shared and put into practice”
