Do You Need Technology To Be Successful?
I am what you might call a 'technological laggard': I am super slow to adopt anything new.
I was buying a Discman (for CDs) when the Mini-disc Player came out.
I was buying a Mini-disc Player when the iPod came out.
I never bothered getting an iPod; I am still satisfied playing CDs on my ghetto blaster.
An interesting survey I recently read points out that women who embrace technology are 'more likely to be highly successful'.
I suppose this means that technology makes life easier and allows us women to get even more done, even more efficiently than we would do without it.
I don't have an iPhone (go figure) but I do have a Blackberry... which I adore. And I must say, it does enable me to get more done... and makes me even more efficient than I was before the said smartphone graced my world.
But perhaps success isn't about 'productivity' or 'efficiency'. Perhaps it's about having more time to spend doing all the other stuff in my life once I've got all my work done.
What do you think?
Does technology make you more 'successful'?
And what does 'success' mean here?
