For one of my New Year’s resolutions this year, I committed to actually use more of the technology that’s at my disposal to increase my productivity. As an example, I’m actually dictating this post rather than typing it. This is technology that’s been embedded in my Mac for the last several years but I have not used it.
I find that it’s the basic human instinct to not change the way they work and it is a pervasive change management challenge for every single project undertaken in the company. If I can’t personally change the way that I work even though it’s in my best interest and I have the tools to do so why would I change based on what someone else is telling me to do differently in a corporate environment? Hopefully I’ll get on the bandwagon in the coming months and raise questions and propose solutions to the technology and productivity challenges facing us everyday.
