Join Dave Crenshaw for an in-depth discussion in this video Balancing the technology in your life, part of Balancing Work and Life.
One of the more significant challenges that we face…to work-life balance in our day is technology.…Now I love technology,…but those beeps and buzzes, the glowing screens…can get in the way of us being more productive…at work and also building relationships with others.…This is why I recommend that we create a sanctuary.…Now in the classic sense,…a sanctuary is a holy place.…It's set aside to protect things…whether that the nature sanctuary…or an animal sanctuary.…In this case, I want you to create…a no-tech sanctuary.…
It's a certain time of the week…or certain times of the day…where you turn off all of those electronic gadgets.…There are a couple of positives that will come from this.…Number 1 is that your relationships with others…will improve.…When you use technology in the presence of others,…you're communicating to them that they're…second place to whatever it is that you're using…in the moment.…However, if you can turn those things off…and give 100% of your attention to other people,…you'll communicate to them that there's nothing…
