Hi super awesome working mom. You work hard all day long and nights too. You could use a break, or at least some help. I think you deserve a special helper. One that can assist you in managing your life, home and career. Wouldn’t that be nice? Well guess what, you probably have one already but maybe you just haven’t trained it to do all of those things we just agreed that you deserve and need. It’s your mobile technology. Specifically, I am talking about your smartphones, tablets and laptops. Just like a puppy, once you train em you will love em like family.
Why aren’t you using your technology? I would be willing to bet, most of you are not even using 10% of what your mobile device is capable of, and I know why. You simply don’t know how. Am I right? And, you don’t know how because it takes time to learn new stuff and maybe you just haven’t found the time.
A plan that might work The thing is, new technology is overwhelming at first, but if you take it one small piece at a time, you will be amazed at what you can learn and do. If you pick just one feature a week to learn about, before you know it, you will have customized your devices to be the “mama’s little helper” they are capable of being. Just one a week. I would probably start first with learning about the device's features. Where can you learn to use your mobile devices? Start first with learning about your device(s), one at a time, before you focus on apps. YouTube and Google are your new besties and go-tos for quick and convenient tutorials. All you need to know is the type of device you have, google it and find videos. Most manufacturers have their own tutorials these days as well. It really is that easy.
So, pick a day and a time to learn about your device(s). Remember just one at a time. After all, you deserve to know what all they can do for you if they are going to take up space in your home and life.
Please be sure to share all of the tips and tricks you learn, and links to where you learned it with your gal-pal community (we need to work on that name) in the space below.
