If there’s one thing that everyone can agree on, it’s that the world of technology is fast-paced, ever-changing, and sometimes hard to keep up with. At Mid Century Fiber, we believe in the power of technology and its use for good, which is why we believe it’s important for everyone to implement some sort of technology software into their personal or professional life. But how do you stay up-to-date with the latest equipment and software? How do you know what you need? We have three tips to point you in the right direction!
- Address Your Needs & Do Your Research
We get it- it’s extremely intimidating going on the internet not knowing what to look for. First and foremost, ask yourself what your needs are, what is in your price range, and what your ultimate end goal is. With the all resources out there, it can be a challenge to find what you’re looking for between all the ads, links, and images. We find that starting basic research on trusted resources like Flipboard is a great way to stay up-to-date and get trusted reviews on equipment and software you may be looking into.
- Keep It Simple
Sometimes, technology can make our brains feel like short-circuiting with the overload of information we receive. Whether it’s a new software that helps with finances or a new social media channel and strategy in place, start out small and build from there. You don’t have to sign up or buy every new piece of technology that comes your way. We suggest implementing or updating new resources one at a time so you see if it’s truly the best fit for you.
- Connect With Others
One of the greatest benefits of technology is the impressive expansion it has gifted us in regards to communication. If you’re interested in learning more about different equipment and softwares, we suggest asking for personal opinions of others around you. Family and friends are a great first line of defense, along with others in the same field as you. While reviews are helpful and insightful, there’s nothing like getting to have a genuine conversation with someone on how a resource has impacted their business or personal life. Another great resource to tap into is the younger generations that are immersed in the technology world. Ask them what they are using and why- they are the future of business, education, consumerism, and everything in between.
