Can you image life before technology? Think about how much of your life revolves around technology. Chances are you cannot imagine that life. Well, depending on how old you are, you might remember life before modern technology. How did we ever survive? How did we do without cell phones? What about life before computers? How did we find our way around without our GPS navigation? Life without technology seems so difficult, but is it? Was it simpler back then? Now that we have technology, it is sometimes difficult to even imagine how we ever did without it.
Before the cell phone, people had to use landline phones to try to get connected with friends and family. You could really only get in touch with people if they were at home. If you lived back then, you are aware of how frustrating that was. Then, people began using pagers. This made it a bit easier for them to get in touch with others without having to wait for them to come home. Then, the cell phone hit the market and the world has been different ever since.
The smartphone came next. Smartphones have made cell phones almost obsolete. People enjoy being able to keep in touch with friends and family through social media, text, video chat and voice calls via their smartphone. This really changed the mobile phone industry altogether.
Life before GPS navigation meant getting directions before you left the house, writing them down or keeping a map in your car. It is much easier to find places with voice guided navigation. You don’t have to worry about getting lost, except for the rare occasion when the GPS leads you to the wrong place.
What do you think? Was life simpler before all of the modern technological innovations? It was surely a lot simpler, but did it change for the better as technology began advancing? Modern technology does not stay modern for very long. It will not be long before people start looking back at the things that we use and see them as something very outdated.
When you think about it, it is somewhat difficult to imagine life without the current technology, but it may become outdated in years rather than in decades. Changes occur on a daily basis, ever so slightly, until a new technological advancement is introduced and the older high tech gadgets are not considered to be high tech anymore. Just when you get used to one technology, you have to be prepared to learn something new.
Technology means that you are never through with learning. It is a constant. No matter whether it is new computers, new mobile phones, new GPS navigation devices, or even new machines to help you with chores around the house, there is always something new and innovative hitting the market. Behind the scenes, people have ideas and they are trying to use technology to help them make their ideas a reality.
You can readily embrace technology and use it fully. Similarly, you should be open to new things.
