On this note, you should take advantage of technology on how to be more productive, whether it is for your personal life or work.

For example, if you're an accountant, you should be adept with accounting tools such as Quickbooks, Zoho, Sage, etc. Besides increasing your productivity, knowing how to use software will make you a more desirable professional.
For your personal life, technology can help you become more productive by reducing the time you spend on errands, giving you more time to spend with your friends and family. You can even take advantage of some much needed “ME” Time.
