Overwhelmed by all of your technology and apps/applications, but still want to move forward and not become a fuddy duddy? (“Fuddy duddy” is the technical term for someone who has given up on new technologies and is angered or baffled by the influx of new tech. Don’t fact check that.)
I will post my five tips as a Friday series, starting today and ending when I run out of tips, to help you try to walk this line.
First up? Tip #1 is Pilot.
Try new things, but chart your territory first. Treat it like a pilot. Be prepared to evaluate new software or hardware, knowing it is on a trial basis. This allows you the freedom to evaluate objectively without such a hardline commitment that you must add something new to your “stuff”—physically and mentally.
Maybe you’re piloting something to meet a need in your professional or personal life, or maybe you just want to try something new. Either way, this post will provide you some suggestions for your pilot period.
