Why bother keeping up with technology?

Filed under: Technology, Training

Best Toaster

It’s a full time job just to keep track of it, much less learn how to use it.  If you played video games at age 6 (Pac Man at the arcade doesn’t count), it’s a natural part of life.  But what about the rest of us?  We get by and hope it works.  Often, we tolerate technology.

Computers and the internet are pretty much inescapable.  And they can save huge amounts of time and money.  If you have a business, you need them to keep up with your competitors.  All are reasons to be tech savvy.

So here’s the secret. You learned it in yoga.  Stay focused and in the moment.  What do you need to do right now?  Marketing?  Find a new job?  Compare toasters? Raise funds?  Now, “Google” it.  Search on “how do I compare toasters?”  Read a couple of sources.  Ignore the sales pitches and be careful not to fall into “research paralysis”. Now, go buy your toaster. Or better yet, find the best price and buy one online.

There.  You did it. You just used the internet to save time and money.  Remember, you don’t need to be an expert, you just need to Be Conversant.
