Miracles Of Mobile
From going vegan to living a more "green" lifestyle, my mobile devices have helped me organize my time, projects, and ideas in ways I would not have without them. My most recently purchased mobile device being the iPod Touch has seen the most use, and it is amazing.
To many, time is the ultimate resource. It's the only non-renewable resource we have and to most, more precious than all the riches in the world. We mistakenly think time can be "saved" as if it were money, but all we can truly do is make the best of what we have of it. And so, anything that helps us to be more efficient with our time becomes extremely valuable the more we utilize it. However, our mobile devices only allow us to do the things we want to do. It's up to us to decide how we spend our time, be it wise or unwise. With so many time stealing games and other useless apps available for mobile devices growing by the minute, it becomes harder for some to focus on the ways our mobile devices can help us become better people. Nothing's wrong with a little rest and relaxation every now and then, but there should be a balance of what we do with our time even on the move. We use our devices to keep in contact with others, take notes for great ideas, make shopping lists, capture photos and video, save cooking recipes, listen to music, watch movies, read books, surf the web, and so much more all while on the go. Mobile devices are the ultimate time "savers", and they change my life for the better everyday.
The number of projects I work on is astounding. From small DIY projects around the house to long-term projects that may help others one day, they all grow and develop on my mobile devices now. It used to be harder to do not long ago when the PC was the best place to keep all these projects organized, but now mobile devices have enough power and storage space to keep most of my projects as well as start new ones while away from home. I've been able to put a whole website together for a client while on vacation using only a mobile phone, I've taken notes without writing or typing by using the voice recorder or video recorder on the same phone. I've mapped out an entire trip including hotel, restaurants, gas stations, and other points of interest all on my mobile device. I am able to start and complete multiple projects faster than ever thanks to mobile technology.
Ideas And Goals
With so many thoughts entering my head throughout each day, the quicker I can take some notes down the better. Having a mobile device capable of recording my ideas and goals is invaluable and gives my mind the rest it needs once I know my thoughts will live longer than the moment of conception.
But just having the tools for a job doesn't get the job done. Time is only "saved" when we do things efficiently enough to make room for other things to do or get done. Projects are good to have going, but it is the completed one that is worth anything. And ideas and goals are wonderful things for anyone to have, but the ideas we share and the goals we actually strive for are the ones that change and mold our world.
