Richard Dean Anderson a.k.a MacGyver
My favorite TV show was MacGyver and that was in the 80’s (1985). I still could recalled how he came out with ideas to solve complicated things like modifying circuits and etc. I knew it was just a show but i really enjoyed it. Do you know that we as electronic repairer sometimes have ideas like MacGyver too? Don’t believe? Have you come across a broken Monitor stand (base) before and then you use whichever possible way to fix it. You might have drilled a hole to insert the screw, placing cables to tighten the joints and etc. Your ultimate aim is to solve the problem! If you have been in this line i believe you will surely have came across many situation before that needs you to come out with an idea to solve a particular problem.
Do you know that i also encourage my students to think like MacGyver? Many things we can’t or don’t learn from books or courses (especially modification that works!) and sometimes they have to pressure themselves a little bit to come out with a solution. Our TV program started few months ago every Friday midnight shown back MacGyver and it brought me back to my younger days memories. Even though i have watched before but watching it second time could be still fun and excited too! He is 58 years old now and you can view the video below about the interview.
