Today we discuss how to use technology to our advantage - we're talking about how to make technology work for you in 2023.

Here are some tips to help you make the most of technology:

  1. Evaluate how you feel after using technology: Do you feel productive, relaxed, or overwhelmed? If a piece of technology makes you feel bad, it may not be serving you well.

  2. Consider how much time you spend on technology: Is it saving you time or consuming more of it? If it's the latter, it may be time to reassess your use.

  3. Align technology with your values and goals: Identify what's most important to you, whether it's family, work, or free time, and use technology to reinforce those values.

To illustrate the point, let's take the example of a family CRM. A shared database that includes information about health, finances, education, and contacts can be a convenient tool to stay organized. It can also be used to reinforce the value of family and help members support each other.

Another example is note-taking apps. While it may be easier to jot down notes on paper, electronic note-taking apps can help you build knowledge and make connections between ideas.

Finally, technology can be a valuable tool for learning new skills. From online courses to YouTube tutorials, the internet offers a wealth of resources to help you grow and develop.
