Technology today! How are you supposed to learn those little time saving tips everyone else seems to know by instinct?! I thought it would be helpful to put together a basic list of Top Ten Tech Tips to improve your day to day tasks. A couple things really jumped out at me while I researched. One was the writer/speaker David Pogue because of his easy way of breaking down information and his charismatic style.
Another was the idea that tips are not helpful unless you can approach technology with a good attitude. In other words, be honest with yourself as to how much information you can soak in at once. If learning one tip a week helps you navigate technology more efficiently then that’s great! No need to review a list of tips and forget everything right away. I suppose what I’m trying to say is, be nice to yourself and give yourself time.
I came across David Pogue’s TED talk and it’s really well done. He talks about those little things that can really help in your day to day life. Pogue grabs you right in the beginning with a little humor.
“I’ve noticed something interesting about society and culture. Everything risky requires a license, so learning to drive, owning a gun, getting married. That’s true in everything risky except technology…So today I’m going to tell you 10 things that you thought everybody knew, but it turns out they don’t.”
