Technology, both polarizing and powerful

Technology is both polarizing and powerful.

Polarizing because of its ability to automate. Some people are thrilled at technological advancements as it can improve processes and allow us to focus on what cannot be automated. For example, by allowing systems to take over reoccurring tasks, we can shift our focus on exercising our soft skills such as building relationships. Others are upset about the idea of “robots” taking over their jobs and pushing them out of the workforce. Suddenly, technical skills become obsolete.

I have noticed that one’s opinion towards technology is parallel to one’s ability to handle change. Technology is always shifting and advancing making it difficult for people to keep up. Either you adapt to find tomorrow’s solutions or get stuck with yesterday’s problems. Adopting technology that is most suitable to your needs can simply change your life. It goes without saying that, like all things, technology has its downsides. However, it is apparent that it has the ability to shape our daily lives.
