Are you working with technology or is technology working against you? Are you following the mantra – don’t fight change?
Technology is progressing today quicker than we can keep up with.
3-D printers are being fine-tuned to print food. We can talk to people anywhere in the world with the click of a button. And people are being replaced by robots not just at work but in the driver’s seat too.
Technology is going to do great things in the future. Unless it’s working against you. Technology simplifies our lives.
Just think of how much stuff you can do from your phone. You can get directions. You can order anything in the world. You can research whatever you want.
Which means that anyone who makes maps or runs a library has very strong competition for their customers. Because technology is working against them.
There’s a quote from Jon Kabat-Zinn that sums it up perfectly. “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
Technology will always progress just as steadily as waves on the beach. There’s nothing you can do to stop that. But you can ride the waves.
