Gadgets, oh, Gadgets! [EF#3]

I am a person who can not move away from my gadgets. I love new technology. I could spend much on gadgets rather than new fashion trend. Especially since I had received my own salary. I would save my money just for a gadget, the new one or the second one. I like to operate new technology with its new features. More over I am an electrical engineer in computer system. This made me falling over gadgets.

But gadgets made me lazy in reading books. Yup, I’ve just realized that too much playing with gadgets made my reading ability decreasing. And it turns out there are so many more reasons how gadgets affected my life. Here are some points (I combine the good and the bad):

Bad:

  1. As I mentioned before, my reading ability was decreasing. I used to read a book in a week, but now I even can not finish one book in a month.
  2. In the past three weeks, my boss kept mad at me because I was too focus on my smartphone rather than my job (but hey I finished my work *excuse*). Well, I could not blame him, the blame is on me :D. That was my own mistake. I realize that my work was unsatisfying although I could finish it.
  3. Once, my husband scolded me. He said I had spent too much time on using gadget and forgot to do some priorities. Yes, my priorities were forgotten. Even I was too focus on my gadgets rather than my families who live near me.

Good:

  1. I can meet my old friends who live far away from Indonesia. I know whether they are doing well or not. More over I also can meet new friends who have the same hobby or even passion.
  2. I can say that finally I know what I must do for the future through my gadgets. I don’t say that my future is defined by your gadgets or even that I must spend most of your time with gadgets. No! It’s a big NO!! What I want to say here that my passion for the future is related to gadgets. But I should use them wisely.
  3. I have an online shop now. It means that gadgets help me to promote my shop, and even the best promotion tool for online shop :D.

So, from now on I try to use my gadgets based on my priorities. I need to follow my own rule in time management and be discipline toward it so that my gadgets will not be obstacles of my enjoyable life with my families. How about you?

  1. Hopefully your relationship with your gadget will improve. Hehhehe. Yup. We should live based on priorities. Including how gadget should affect our life. Btw I finished two books using my smartphone. Hihihi. *pamer *trus dijejelin colokan

    1. Huehehe if my gadget can talk, it may say, “leave me alone, I’m bored with you”, sangking setiap saat dipegang dan dilihat.

      Owow.. cool mas!!!!! Buku apa aja mas? Jangan bilang buku bahasa inggris yang bahasanya berat-berat bingo xD
      Owhnononono… I almost gave up. πŸ™ Mata kriyep-kriyep padahal baru baca 10 halaman. Buku fisik masih jadi idaman tapi rogoh koceknya itu nggak idaman banget.

  2. If I may suggest, why don’t you read e-books on your gadget? Well, it’s kinda like killing two birds with one stone: your gadget will be more useful and you could spend your leisure time with something interesting, too :hehe
    May I know what are you selling on your online shop? It looks interesting πŸ™‚

    1. Hehehe actually, I have like hundreds of ebooks in my google play book. I’ve changed to ebooks for two years. But really socmed and web are hard to resist πŸ˜€

      Hehehe, I open an online fashion store. If you may, you can visit @sanwashops instagram. promotion :))

  3. jadi memang belum bisa disimpulkan ya mbak Sandrine… soalnya 3 lawan 3… πŸ˜€

    tapi emang sih, kelebihan dan kekurangan dari penggunaan gadget itu baru akan mempunyai arti kalau kita sendiri yang memegang kendali… mau jadi apa hidup kita with or without gadget is obviously based on our own manner…

  4. Me too! I fee like my attention span to read a book is decreasing.. i used to be able to finish a book in 1-2 days now that ive gotten more used to reading twitter or web article it took me very much longer to finish a book… πŸ™
