Hit The Bullseye
Fight the Technology Paradoxes:
- Control/chaos: Technology can facilitate regulation or order and it can lead to upheaval or disorder.
- Freedom/enslavement: Technology can facilitate independence and it can lead to dependence or more restrictions.
- Competence/Incompetence: Technology can facilitate feelings of intelligence and it can lead to feelings of ignorance or ineptitude.
- Efficiency/Inefficiency: Technology can save time on certain activities and it can lead to more effort or time needed for certain activities.
- Engaging/Disengaging: Technology can facilitate involvement and connections and it can lead to disconnection or passivity
See technology as an opportunity for personal and professional growth. We often think of the downsides and avoid jumping in on new technology. But the paradoxes of technological progress will always exist. Take the leap and maximize the opportunity while being aware of the challenges.
