In the 21st century technology has grown up to this point that we can contact individuals on the opposite side of the world immediately, we can rapidly download data to our cell phones and can now associate with our work PCs from web bistros, from the bar and even from the nursery! Has technology really made our lives simpler or more muddled?
In the early piece of the last 100 years, a significant part of the technology that we utilize today would be viewed as black magic… machines that fly across the globe as well as into space! Moving pictures? Cell phones? Could you at any point envision the response to these?
In the twentieth century humanity was practically on the moon… so it was not up to this point a jump to envision that continuously 2000 we would occasion on it! PCs had previously made our lives more straightforward by deciphering codes during WWII… in a far more limited time than a group of people could. So we can see that certain individuals accepted that technology would make the existences of those in the 21 st century far simpler… we would vehicles that float, robot maids and be investing less energy working.
The 21st century is currently here and a large part of the sci-fi from the 50s and 60s has not arisen. PCs are all over – in our workplaces, our vehicles, our homes and in our pockets! We can now check our messages on our cell phones, can login to the workplace PC from home, and can be in steady contact.
On the off chance that technology isn’t utilized successfully and admirably, we can very before long find that it directs our day. Do you generally answer your portable when it rings? Do at any point have it switched off? How frequently do you check your messages? How frequently do you sign into the workplace PC? Is it true or not that you are as yet working on work reports at 12 PM on your PC? Do you take your PC on vacation with you? How frequently has your office reached you when you were on vacation or off wiped out – and assuming that they did – was it extremely vital? The issue no sweat of availability to the workplace machines, or without a doubt for individuals to reach us, is that this implies that greater levels of popularity can be set upon us, and this is particularly valid for the people who can’t say no, delegate nor deal with their time successfully.
Technology can likewise be very diverting which in itself can likewise significantly affect the manners by which we deal with our time and our assignments. Do you have courier running while you are doing fundamental undertakings? How frequently do you check your email while dealing with a significant and ordinarily time basic errand? Do you truly have to make sure that website before the assignment is finished? How often do you get (and at times forward) messages that are really SPAM (you know the ones – “FWD charming fastidious send back or you are not my companion”).
How frequently do you find your pulse raising, and your emotion raging out of control during the teeth grinding swearathon when the technology lets you down? When the PC crashes in a significant record, as the printer jams, as the portable looses signal? Our dependence on technology can in some cases be perfect to the point that we frequently can be in conflict for what to do when the technology separates… however is there a way we could forestall this? Is there a way we could respond in an unexpected way? Is it safe to say that we are depending on the technology more than we depend on our humankind?
From the above we can see that technology in the event that utilized in a shrewd way can not exclusively be diverting, and outrage creating yet can be counter-useful. However assuming we figure out how to involve technology in a savvy way, it tends to be the device that makes our lives simpler, maybe not to the degree imagined in the last option part of the twentieth 100 years yet unquestionably in a manner that can lessen our pressure. My next article will take a gander at how we can make our 21st century technological world work for us in diminishing our pressure.
