My National Speaker's Association meeting has fallen on Valentine's weekend, leaving me time to reflect on the love-hate relationship of my life...
I'm talking about my on-again, off-again fling with Technology.
You see, Technology is like the BMOC (big man on campus), and I am the shy chick in the hiking club.
And Technology looks pretty good to me, especially with Valentine's and Sadie Hawkin's in the air, so I flirt.
I smile big on Facebook. I wiggle my brows on LinkedIn. I giggle on Twitter.
And Technology responds. Contacts increase. Events start moving.
But I get tired or bored or plain overwhelmed trying to keep up with T. I cut and paste my heart out and Technology whispers in my ear asking for more: "Wouldn't a little Ping be fun tonight, Pumpkin?" or "How's about you 'n me Skype after supper tonight?"
I know that for any relationship to succeed I need to work my half of the deal, and I do try. I attend conferences to learn the latest and greatest and must haves and must do's. Alas, Technology and I do not always see eye-to-eye... I don't have the time to do and learn it all...
So I ask myself, What parts of this relationship am I willing to work on? What can I leave behind? and How can I make the most of the time I have to spend with Technology?
At day's end, we stand in the doorway. I kiss Technology good night and step away.
"But can't we blog just a little, Babe?"
Maybe tomorrow, Sweetie...
