When Technology Fails

Category: Articles  |  Author: Laura Ellis  |  9 Comments

In the past 48 hours Technology decided to revolt against me. First, my computer refused to display the available networks I could connect to and as a result I was unable to connect for more than 24 hours.

I also had to transfer money to my designer if I wanted him to work over the weekend and finish the changes to my website. I turned to my mobile device instead and found that I was locked out of my account because the bank’s system did not recognize the IP address. Finally, I learned too late that my writer’s reasons for not responding to my urgent calls for help were due to the fact that all my e-mails had been re-directed to her “junk” folder. In spite of the fact that we had ample communication before.

The consequences of all those technological hiccups are significant to me. If you have been following my countdown postings you would have noticed that my countdown “skipped” Day 2. Also, my website will not be ready for the show. The question though is around what happens to our decision making when we find ourselves in a crisis? Do we gain an even greater clarity so we can trouble shoot with precision, or do we allow our feelings about the situation interfere with our thinking, and subsequently make poor decisions?

My Advisors and I will be able to answer those questions for you. One by one. All you need to do is listen to “Because There’s More” on VoiceAmerica business channel.

    Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile
    friendly? My weblog looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
    I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this problem.

    If you have any recommendations, please share. Many thanks!
