Why You Should Invest in Technology

 

I’ve been talking recently about what I call the “principles of prosperity.” The last couple have had to do with money – what it is and how it works. Today, I’d like to touch on technology. The principle here is that the purpose of technology is to serve its master. That might sound kind of harsh, but the good news is that my phone has no feelings. The reality of the matter is that technology, like money, is a tool that we can use to our advantage, if we choose to. Whether your purpose is work-related, or purely entertainment, technology is there to do what you want.

I remember in my early days of appraising, I decided to purchase a laser. It was relatively new technology at the time, so there weren’t a lot of options out there. My mentor was very against my purchase. He saw it as nothing more than a gadget; a waste of money, really. But I purchased it anyway. You see, I saw this purchase not as just something cool, but as an investment in my future. Sure enough, after a month or two, my laser had paid itself off by helping me increase my productivity.

Of course, make sure you’re honest with yourself about your real intent in your purchase – don’t go out and get something you don’t need by justifying it to yourself. Purchasing something purely for entertainment is okay, but use technology the way it’s been intended – as a tool. Treat it like an investment. Technology will help you on your journey to prosperity as you let it serve you, instead of the other way around.

  1. Got it, set your laser tape measure to round to the nearest 6 inches and call it a technology advancement. Sometimes behind the tool, is a bigger tool.

    Seek the truth.
