We currently live surrounded by technology these days. Our interactions not only happen at different times but in fragments and in different platforms. Our society has been changing dramatically, perhaps without us being aware.
The inner voice that whispers to us that we need to take a step back and rethink our interactions supported by technology will only get louder and louder.
We have a tremendous opportunity and responsibility to make sure that we use technology for the collective as well as individual good.
We need to go beyond technology and data to reach human insights and wisdom
In as much as I love technology, I have come to the realization that we need a break from it. Doing so, should allow us to reconnect with many of the things in life that we have stopped paying attention to.
Below is a video that captures in such a way the lifestyle that we see more and more these days. Almost everywhere you go there is someone looking at a mobile device.
I honestly think that we need to go back to the heart to heart connections and we need to really make it a priority to take a break from technology at least once a day.
Here’s how the conversation started with Tiffany:
