Matt Mullenweg a social media entrepreneur once quoted “Technology is best when it brings people together.”
The evolution of digital technology is such that even if we wanted to, we can’t stop the impact, especially in a community like ours. The average man today has better medical care, unlimited access to information and education. Better options to travel in and communicate with one another across long distances more than the wealthy monarchs in time past.
A few years ago, I was just an average individual who loved tech. I was so enthusiastic about tech that I regularly kept up with the latest trends by learning new technologies. Now, I have clients whom I communicate with virtually most of the time. As a matter of fact, I have never met most of them physically, why? This is because of the rapid revolution of digital and technology that the global pandemic brought. The world has now become a global village where there is a dramatic increase in the standard of living due to labor productivity.
From the industrial age to modern age, it is quite obvious that digital and tech has greatly improved working conditions.
The impact has covered long working hours and has replaced tedious work conditions with efficient tools that speed up work processes and make you achieve more in record time.
The digital and tech sector is a competitive industry and it requires new strategies and practices. Most brands have grown to recognize how much of an impact digital technology holds for their businesses. Through technology, we have seen the growth of emails, virtual meeting places, work tools which we have increasingly grown to depend on because they help to give more efficiency and visibility to your startup.
One thing about my thought leadership is the fact that I’m not just content with my basic knowledge of tech. Tech and digital is a sector that keeps evolving over the years and to keep updated on trends, one must be willing to learn new technologies. I had the knowledge of coding, digital marketing and a whole of other technical know-hows before I created my startup. Now I use Google sheet, Google drive, Google docs, Google meet for my meetings and canva for my product designs. I had to learn more than the basic knowledge of product and web design. I have learnt quite a lot from tech between 2020 and till now, and I have not stopped learning.
It should also be observed that the global pandemic was a major propeller for the growth of digital technology all over the world. The pandemic caused most brands and startups to create temporary solutions to meet any demand brought upon them suddenly much more quickly than they had thought possible before the global crisis.
The reliance on digital and technology also became much more profound as they began to recognize the importance of technology and how far its reach was.
It also helped because many consumers naturally leaned more onto technological channels and platforms they’ve been using over the course of the pandemic.
The pandemic helped me create a tech startup which sped up in a space of a few years due to the world’s new outlook on tech and digital. My tech brand Centiiv is founded on a community of blockchain enthusiasts like myself who are curious to learn all they can about blockchain. The growth of technology is a wave that cannot be stopped.
Every day more people discover new inventions that make life simpler and work more efficient. My workplace productivity has grown by a huge margin and the numbers keep rising because thanks to online communication tools, technology enables us to work more closely in some ways even while working remotely. Teamwork is now simpler to achieve even when workers are not in the same place.
