Technology too much



Let’s say you’re rushing for work or school, you grab all your stuff and rush out the door and get a cab.

Finally, you get to your office or school, then when you get a hold of yourself and fix your stuff, you realize you forgot your precious rugged mobile phone at home. NOOO! How will you get through the day without your phone and all the awesome apps that you’ve been relying on?

This may be a bit far-fetched, but there really are people who can’t live a day without their smartphones or high-tech gadgets with them.

Not only in this instance, but there are many other examples wherein we rely too much on technology that we forget that it’s sometimes more efficient to do some tasks by ourselves.

Here’s why:

1. Digital messages can’t express emotion

Text messages, emails, and chat messages cannot convey emotion—no matter how many emojis you add on your messages.

Choose to talk to a person personally if the matter is important, especially so if you need to apologize.

2. The power of sticky notes

It’s alright to have your long term tasks marked on your phone calendar, but sometimes you only end up wasting time moving around your tasks if they take more time than expected or if a new task comes up.

To be effective in scheduling, write down (on actual paper or stick notes) the next 3 things you need to accomplish and get the satisfaction of crossing out each one as you finish them. Repeat once done.

3. Siri or Google can’t give that “personal touch”

Siri or Google can tell you what to give your friend on his/her birthday, but they can’t really tell if he/ she wants a new book, a red shirt or purple shoes for his/her birthday.

For these kinds of things, it’s always better to have that personal touch instead of relying on tech.

4. Ditch Spell Check

Invest some time in reading more articles, books, or any literature to boost your vocabulary and writing skills.

This will not only make you sound smart but it will also help you develop better communication skills.

Be your own proofreader, or ask a skilled office co-worker to proofread for you instead on relying on spell check.

Innovations are too dependent on tech

According to TNW, we also need to consider the role that our technological dependence could have on innovation, and the progression of our societal capabilities. If we become wholly dependent on certain types of technology, to the point where we’re unable to live comfortably without them, we pigeonhole ourselves into using variations of that technology. For example, if we become too dependent on smartphones, our line of technological progression will, for an extended period of time, force us to come up with smaller, faster, and more convenient smartphones, rather than innovating something entirely novel.
