It’s not like I’m asking you to donate a Kidney

I like technology, maybe even love it. Not enough to learn coding but I’ll mess around a bit under the hood. However I know there still is a strong, and often vocal, minority (majority?) of people who resist technology like the plague.

I know when I get the old line: “I’m the old fashioned paper and pencil type.” I’m fighting an uphill battle.

So you want to write the next great novel in your moleskin with a #2 pencil? Go for it. But when a group of people decide to use a web based tool to do xyz you gotta go with the crowd or be left behind.

What can I say? It’s like road construction, or learning a new car. It takes a while to get used to the differences but you live, still make it to your destination and might even find something new.

Technology is not always time-saving, and sometimes the latest and greatest fades away to the rise of the new and shiny. However you can’t say it doesn’t work until you give it a try. Often your reluctance to embrace new ideas and new styles will doom your attempt before giving it a fair shake.

I love fancy day runner type planners, but have made the Google tools my standard because of the integration and availability on both computer and phone. Do I ever miss adding little icons or doodles in the margins of my calendar? Of course I do, but I let myself have a new custom built notebook where I can doodle to my hearts content and not worry about leaving it behind when I need it.

So quit giving me the drama you peeps! You know who you are. 😉 It’s not like I’m asking you to donate a kidney.
