Work Smarter, Not Harder...
Take a look at the picture above:

This setting, shown in hundreds of almost identical photos, has become the prevalent image of a network technician hard at work. But does it have to be this uncomfortable?
Proper Tools Make Life Easier
Suitable, efficient tools make the difference between success and failure in any type of work. You could cut a piece of wood with a file but just imagine how long and painful that'll be.
The same goes for network management. Once you learn what hardware and accessories to use and where, you'll handle an assignment comfortably instead of suffering a lengthy and painstaking process of ups and downs...

You must have heard this a lot but you don't have to work hard! You gotta be smart!
