Here’s the tricky thing about technology – how do we use it to serve us, and not become a slave to it? Everyone with a smartphone knows this dilemma only too well. The world’s information is instantly available on your touchscreen, yet we can’t stop compulsively checking our social media feeds and falling down internet rabbit holes. Which of course becomes a black hole for your most precious commodity – time. The answer is to be disciplined in how we use this gift, which is a hell of a lot easier said than done.
The thing is, it’s not always clear how to utilize technology in a way that helps us self-actualize. It’s almost as we are in a partnership with it – it slowly reveals its secrets, but in the process of discovering them, we can become lost – hypnotized by the allure of possibilities we can’t begin to imagine.
