Standing in the Apple line at the Burlington Mall waiting for the "privilege" to buy my new iphone, I had the time to reflect upon my relationship to technology.
As a consultant, I am a change agent. I help organizations and their leaders develop, grow, expand their capabilities and be more effective in achieving their business results. Which is why I love technology: its all about change.
-It saves time
-Your kids can't make fun of you for being non-tech savvy (don't worry, they'll find something else!).
Too many people resist change, innovation and new technology which is unfortunate. Is it fear, frustration, general resistance to change or progress? Nostalgia and a desire for the good old days when things were simpler? True, technology can be used for good or evil, and we can become slaves to our new fancy applications.....like the need to check your emails 24/7...why? Because you can!
Nonetheless, we are in a world of fast moving new technological apps and if you want to stay ahead of the game, you need to embrace change rather than resist it.
Meanwhile, I need to go find out if my iphone is going to sync with my Mac desktop. What a pain!
