When I was in high school, I got a grade of 79 from my Computer Class. It was the lowest point of my life. I was on a full scholarship and getting a 79 meant that I would lose a lot of privileges.
I think the reason why I failed is because of how I perceived Computer Class.
I believed that computers were cryptic. I believed that they were meant for geniuses and not for me. Because of my limiting belief about computers, my grades suffered.
But a lot of changed since then.
Now, I embrace technology. It’s almost as if it is a part of me.
Now, I find it easy to understand how computer works, its specifications, and practically anything technical in nature. I have come to love technology. In fact, I love it so much that I have a website about it. Because I changed my belief about technology, my behavior towards it also changed.
It made my life better.
Because of the different technological tools such as laptops and smartphones, I have become productive. I believe that I have become a better person who finds it comfortable to always find solutions to problems and find ways to better do things.
And I’m hoping that the same thing happens to you this 2014.
There are so many ways that technology can help you in different aspects of your life. And we’re living at a time when technology is literary at our fingertips.
With our smartphones, we have access to all sorts of information. And what we do with this information affects our life in so many ways.
With the different apps, we become more efficient. For example, when I utilized Evernote, a note-taking app, I accomplished so many things in 2013. In January 2013, I had two or three notes. At the end of the year, I have almost 500 notes. These notes composed of different things such as writing exercises, drafts for my blog posts, to-do lists, and inspirational quotes.
Access to information and to better organize our daily lives are just a few things that technology can do for us. We are only limited by our imagination.
I’m actually quite excited to see how else I can use the different technological tools to improve my life this 2014.
And I hope that you share my excitement and enthusiasm by exploring technology and all the things that it can offer.
Happy New Year!
May you have a prosperous and productive 2014! 🙂
