#DigiLit Sunday: Perspective

It’s time to write about this week’s topic “Perspective”.

As I think of drafting, revising, editing, and publishing this post, I also think about the technology that enables me to write more efficiently and effectively than ever before.

Will technology be my friend?  

Will my computer cooperate?

How will I know?  As an early morning “writer”, I am quite OCD about early publication so I can move on to the “heart of the day”.

Will my screen look like this?

Will I throw up my hands in the air and quit?

Who will win?

The person?

Or the machine?

Will I work collaboratively for a “Win-Win” situation to accomplish the task without drama or frustration?

It’s ALL about perspective!

It’s your choice!

What’s your MINDSET?

Thanks for the topic, Margaret!  Check out more #DigiLit Sunday posts at Margaret Simon’s blog,  Reflections on the Teche.

  1. Ah. I so relate to that fight or flight response when the internet doesn’t cooperate. Eck! Most of the time, persistence pays off. 🙂 Looks like you won this morning!

    1. Sometimes when traveling, life is totally an adventure! 😀

  2. I try writing at different times of the day, letting it sit around, and then coming back to see if my perspective has changed. The graphics in this post make it pop!

    1. I love having a longer window to publish inside of, but even then silly interruptions can be incredibly frustrating!!!

  3. Sometimes, you have to go with the flow. Big storms took down our internet today…but I got reading done!

    1. Yay, reading! I find that I cause my own frustration when traveling because nothing is ever as simple as it should be!!!

  4. I think my computer is dying a very slloooowww death. So I am afraid real soon I will be the picture of the person throwing my hands up in the air and saying I quit! Thanks for the smiles about perspective! Hope you are enjoying your travels!

    1. Hopefully you can either get it fixed or retrieve your vital work. Best travels in the world!!!

  5. I was thinking about the link between perspective and mindset, too. I like to write early in the day, but some days are more productive than others. Your thoughts are helping me think about this in a new way. Thanks, Fran!

    1. Catherine,
      For me, being able to deliberately build connections to the real world makes a HUGE difference in the purpose of any and ALL of our work!

      You are welcome! Hope you are having a great holiday weekend!
