Technology has made many incredible advances in the workplace over the last few years – from the growth of the cloud that allows us to work from any location to the new Apple Watch that can give us instant notifications with a flick of the wrist. But, when is technology too much? When is it time to take a step back from the over-interruption of our tech toys?

 

The constant buzz from our phones and the alluring ding of emails on our desktops have slowly eroded our ability to focus on one specific item for an extended period of time. We all love to think we're great multitaskers, but almost none of us actually are. Too many notifications can either end up draining our energy, leading us to disregard priorities or they can become addictive and leave consumers unable to handle everyday situations without a smartphone in hand. We call the growing pervasiveness of alerts “notification creep” — much as scope creep can damage project development, so too can notification creep derail our workdays.

Have you ever watched a child learning to ride a bike? Who (or rather what) gets the blame when things don’t go the way the child wants? The bike! The child might even argue that it’s a stupid bike and it’s impossible to ride.

When you are at your best it raises your confidence to a much higher level, which in turn encourages others to be at their best. It could be your positive attitude, professional dress, etiquette, knowledge or just an inviting smile, but others will automatically mirror what they are seeing or experiencing.
