Why Reinvent the Wheel!?

You know, the last time I looked, all wheels had one thing in common:  they were ROUND!  There is no need for anyone to reinvent the wheel today when some nice caveman did a fine job thousands of years ago!  (OK, so I'm not a history teacher.  Don't check my facts, please!)  My point is:  Why do we all feel like we need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to our own areas of expertise?  As a technology facilitator, I pride myself in being able to create some really great tutorials and step-by-step how-tos for my teacher colleagues.  But why should I spend my valuable time redoing what has already been done?

I've finally gotten smart and decided to work SMARTer, not HARDer!  So here are a few links to some really great resources I've found recently:

I feel better now.  Now let me roll on up out of here!  Have a great day finding experts at what you need to know how to do!
