Know more. The easy way.
Self-teaching is how I learn most things but it has its limitations and plenty of time gets wasted in the hunt for quality content. Lynda.com is a training site for people like us and it genuinely provides an excellent service. It's a library of instructional content (high quality, well structured videos with experts) on all the topics mentioned above and more. Unsurprisingly, as a multimedia designer, I'm an audio visual person, so I would MUCH rather have someone show me what to do and tell me what I need to know. Lynda.com content provides just that. It's also chunked into perfect bite-size nuggets, so even if you only have a spare 5 minutes you can inch forward in your understanding and continue later. Or you can sit and dedicate an hour or a day to getting something entirely under your belt. It's not tips and tricks, it's comprehensive in bite-size chunks.
There are a variety of subscription options, so you can treat it as a magazine or a university course. Check it out. http://www.lynda.com
