It goes without saying. It’s hard to run and grow a profitable business. You’re constantly being faced with enormous challenges and hurdles. These can range from not having enough time in a day to dealing with some challenging customer.
There are so many things that we are faced with during the course of each day. Sometimes events in our life spill over into our business and vice versa. It’s no wonder why most businesses fail when getting started.
Today, in this blog I want to help you out with one of the biggest nemesis in your business. I’m just going to come out and say it.
A business requires you to use all different types of technologies. It requires you to be constantly learning all the new features and apps that come out every year to help with your business.
This can become very overwhelming in your business and your personal life. Let’s face it. There are many choices we can make or have to make when choosing technology for our business.
I thought technology was supposed to make our lives easier and create more time to have in our personal life. It seems that technology just seems to take more of our time up just learning how to use it and get started with it.
Technology Overwhelm – A New Approach
I’m going to try to approach helping you with your technology overwhelm. I’m going to put a little different spin on it and come at it from a different direction for you. I think this will help you with your tech struggles.
I’m not going to tell you that you have to read more books and watch more training videos. I’m also not going to tell you to go find a friend or someone you know that is a geek and have them help you. I’m sure you’ve been down this road many times before.
We need to back up the technology truck. We need to talk about what’s going on before the training and watching videos. This is a step that most people miss when trying to understand technology.
Technology Overwhelm – You
Before you dig into any more training videos or have someone show you over the shoulder exactly how simple it is which just leads to even more frustration. We need to work on you. In particular, we need to work on your mindset.
Without having the right mindset. It won’t matter how many times you try watching videos and have someone show you. You’re going to end up with the same results you been getting this whole time.
Technology Overwhelm – Mindset
I want to help you with thinking about doing this in a different way. A way that you probably haven’t tried or thought about doing. I’m going to lay down a blueprint for you that will make your technology experience enjoyable, productive and fun.
The first thing that I do whenever I’m learning something new is empty my bucket. Of course, I’m talking about a figurative bucket that represents all your previous thoughts and notions from your past about technology. This simply means let go of everything you previously thought about your struggles with technology.
Just let it go.
This is the first and vital step to your success with technology.

Technology Overwhelm – The Big Picture
When you venture out and learn a piece of technology. Your overwhelm comes from looking at the whole picture and trying to take too much in at once. Don’t look at the big picture. You want to break it down into small steps or goals.
Come up with a plan. List each of the small steps you need to learn. Break them down as small as you need to. When you are going through each step. Only focus on that one.

Plan out the small steps that you know you need to reach your goal. Always understand your “why”. This helps me a lot to keep going. You could even have a “why” for each small step and you certainly need a wife or your goal.
Then plan to sit down in a quiet room and learn to watch videos whatever you need to do to get this done.
