SO, HOW CAN YOU BE LOW-TECH IN A BUSINESS WORLD? HERE ARE GEOFF’S TOP TIPS:
I know, it’s much easier to say than do. Technology isn’t something we’re able to simply remove from our lives. We all need it. We all use it. In relation to business, pick a couple of platforms that are critical to either your role or your company, and maintain your presence on these. Seriously, how many instant messaging apps can one person maintain?
In your friendship (and business) circle, be the support network for each other and, in doing so, find new ways to connect and empower each other. Have an open and honest conversation about how you feel when you’re constantly checking the status of your online life. The topic of mobile phone addiction and social media harm is being discussed with increased frequency in schools. Don’t be part of a generation that didn’t discuss this topic openly.
The skills that will be in shortage in the future aren’t going to be IT skills; they’re going to be people skills. Don’t neglect these because not only will they be valued professionally, they’re critical to any meaningful personal relationships you may wish to have.
