Technology is Fun – All Work and No Play is Boring

 

It is important to find a way to have fun things to do on a computer. There is more to life than workWe work to care for our families. Use your technology to have fun and a more balanced life.

 

Spoiler alert – there is a video summary of this article at the bottom of the page.

 

All work and no play makes you boring to your friends and family.

 

In my work as a writer, blogger, and business consultant, I use a computer, tablet, and smartphone. Technology is such a major part of my work, I find it hard to understand people who are afraid of technology and shout about avoiding screen time. Each day I created documents, spreadsheets, presentations, emails, social media posts and multi-media presentations. I do research via the internet. My to-do list, calendar, and time sheets are managed with technology rather than with pen and paper. For me, technology is serious business. My technology is great for work.

At the same time, I recognize that technology can be and should be fun. On my devices, I have apps to read books, apps for magazine subscriptions and listen to audio books. I have apps to play word games, checkers, and chess. I have apps to listen to music, watch movies and look for fun activities. My technology is great for fun.

Entrepreneurs sometimes have tunnel vision. It is not uncommon for an entrepreneur to spend every waking hour working – doing work, researching work, networking for work or thinking about work. When you are an entrepreneur trying to build, maintain or grow a business, work is important. At the same time, most entrepreneurs also have families and friends. Family and friends need, want and deserve time and attention.

Just as entrepreneurs spend time working and doing work-related activities, entrepreneurs need to spend time preparing for interactions with friends and family. Use your technology to stream television shows your family and friends watch. Use your technology to keep up with current events in the news. Use your technology to learn about things your family and friends care about. Believe it or not, the internet can actually be used to search for fun things and things other than your business interests.

So, the question for you today, are you ready to pick up your phone, grab the family and do something silly like the old Pokemon Go craze?
