Technology Implementation in Business and Life and How Important It Is

Technology is the buzz word today. Almost everything we do, use, or consume is processed through some kind of technology. Computers and Internet has changed the face of modern society. Still there are people who are resistant to get themselves adapted, to latest technologies. They are so much involved into the affairs of their business, that they feel getting updated with technical stuff is not going to help them anyways. They feel it is a waste of time. I Am going to share a real life story to highlight, why it is so significant to cope with technology in the modern society.

My father has a trading business, which is doing good. However couple of years back all his accounting and office work was done 100% manually. He was comfortable with it as he was simply unaware of the magic of computers. He was also resistant to get systems and learn them, as he found to it be a waste of time and money.

When I stepped in, I realised that the work for which my father and other employee’s were investing their day and night, is actually not more than couple of hours work with the help of computers. I somehow convinced him to get me some IT stuff like laptops, printers, scanners and specially Internet in the office premises. He was reluctant but I had to hold on to my demands. When I got them a year passed by with no significant implementation of IT in the office. But I learnt lot about how things work in real life and in software applications.

Slowly but steadily I started to automate the office tasks. I automated accounting. After a lot of issues and reluctance from employees, things started to appear in perspective. Almost 80% of the accounting work was simply eliminated. There was no need to manually reconcile financial statements, no balance sheet preparation or different types reports. We dropped one of the employees as accounting became a piece of cake. We started saving hundreds of dollars right from the start. My father became so much relaxed which he never thought he would. He Could now work on more important things in life. Slowly he automated all other aspects such as attendance management, payroll etc. Couple of months later the profits were all time high and there was very less work to do in the Offtime. Now when he looks into the past, it seems unimaginable for him to work the way he used to. He is now a successful entrepreneur with good health. His working hours are 10 to 7 and takes off whenever he feels he needs one, which is very good considering he is a sole proprietor of the firm.

Implementing technology may seem a costly affair and will attract reluctance from the employees. However if successfully implemented technology can turn your firm around and bring out the true potential of your business.

From business to home, from daily life issues to entertainment, technology has a tremendous potential. However first one needs to invest time, to understand things and then use technology effectively for a better and more comfortable life.

Technology and Skills – Utilizing Modern Tools for Our Own and Our Children’s Benefit

If we are to climb the mountain we should be aware of technology, developing the necessary skills – when appropriate – to utilize it in order expedite and make our journey more comfortable. To ignore technology is not wise, to depend on it, however, is foolish. If we ignore it we may miss something that could be helpful. If we depend on it, we believe that the source of our power, our abilities, lies without, not within. No amount of technology and skill can get us up the mountain if our own willingness, intelligence, and wisdom are lacking. If we don’t want to climb that mountain, don’t have faith in our abilities, it won’t happen.

Some people get involved with technology, with the products and information of technology, when it is not related to an express purpose, to a mountain they wish to climb. They may look endlessly at tents even though they already have a tent. They may buy another tent because they enjoy having a collection of tents. They are spending their time and resources in ways that do not support their journey up the mountain. They are gaining satisfaction from possessions rather than the journey. Perhaps focusing on technology and its products may be a way of avoiding the journey.

Part of attaining wisdom is deciding how much is too much. When we acquire and bring along too many gizmos and gadgets when we climb mountains, we may not be able to support the extra weight and stress caused by these products of technology. We will tire easily and become strained; our available energies become focused on maintaining and supporting this unnecessary weight rather than the challenges and demands of our journey. Our progress becomes measurably slowed and our ability to scale the mountain is jeopardized.

Some people may look to technology and skills as the means to achieve their happiness. Our institutions may support this, as some are “workplace” oriented rather than “lifeplace” oriented. Our educational institutions may support and perpetuate the myth that our happiness and fulfillment depend on our careers and skills – technology and related information – rather than our relationships, meaning, and who we are and become.

If skills are the technology themselves, we should be careful about what we may be getting ourselves into. We need to make sure these skills are in line with who we are and desire to be. We need to make sure that these skills don’t distract our energies, redirecting us from our meaning, our desire to be authentic and loving.

For example, we take a job in sales with a mid-sized company. They send us away to a sales skill seminar for our training and development; they are going to teach us how to make a million dollars a year. As we learn these skills at the seminar, we need to ask ourselves if they support our movement towards authenticity and being loving. Are they asking us to be dishonest in any way? Do they give us the opportunity for our input, for our beliefs? Is their treatment of the employee and customer one that is truly respectful and for their respective benefit? Are they honestly representing the potential opportunity? If the job doesn’t support who we are and want to become, do we believe we could make a million dollars a year?

Perhaps if we are attempting to realize our “gift” – the realization of our passion through the connection of our talents and what is important to us – we can better decide if this job and the associated skills enable us. If it doesn’t resonate with who we are and wish to be, perhaps we should continue to look elsewhere, knowing we create and find what we desire by searching, through perseverance.

As another example, perhaps we are exploring some modern “human potential” technologies or therapies to heal a fear, an addiction, compulsion, or relationship in our lives. These technologies are in fact skills that have – in most cases – been developed and designed in recent years. Being new, they may be faddish, relatively untested and evaluated. Again, before we leap in head first, we need to learn about the skills used and decide if they resonate with what we believe and know, who we are and desire to become.

For example, someone I know has trouble acknowledging and expressing her feelings. A new type of therapy was recommended to her that was confrontational and hostile. The idea being, they would push and push, force her up against a wall if necessary, where she would have no place to go but be forced to deal with and express her feelings. However after a couple of hurtful and painful sessions, she felt that this method was in conflict with her beliefs about how humans should interact, and how she should be treated. She decided they could experiment on someone else; it was not for her.

Whether she was “right” globally is not the issue; perhaps this type of therapy will work for someone else. She made the decision that was right for her at that time; it is the truth as she knows it and that’s all that matters. She will continue her search and find what resonates and works for her.

When we are independent, follow our heart and our convictions, we can decide correctly what technologies and skills will empower us. We help our children make decisions regarding the use of technology and skills by sharing – not imposing – our understanding of technology and skills with them. We encourage them by our example to focus on first attaining authenticity, being loving, and determining meaning, and then wisely using technologies and skills that resonate with and compliment who they are and desire to be in the world.

Vacuum Food Sealers Are A Perfect Way To Eliminate Freezer Burn On Your Saved Foods

Does anyone else love fresh food? I don’t mind eating leftovers, but sometimes just leaving food in the fridge can dull the taste and flavor of the food, making it less than fresh. However, I also hate throwing away the leftovers, because it is a waste of money and food. However, I recently purchased a vacuum food sealer, one of the most useful and incredible kitchen devices I have ever seen. Basically with a vacuum food sealer, you can place your food in a plastic bag, and then use the device to suck all the air out of the bag. This dramatically reduces the age of your food, making it delicious and fresh as soon as you take it out of the bag! If you are interested in learning more about these small kitchen appliances, be sure to check out this article!

So why does food last longer and taste better when contained in the airless, plastic bag? First, the air we breathe has oxygen, which in a process caused oxidation can lessen the fresh taste of your meals. Air can also dehydrate your food, changing the texture and potentially causing freezer burn. Finally, open air is the main cause of the growth of bacteria. By sealing your food away in a vacuum, you can cut all the harmful effects of air on food.

How long will it stay fresh? This often depends on the quality of your bag and your vacuum food sealer, your freezer or fridge, and on the food itself. Most people use vacuum sealers to preserve delicate meats and other proteins, since they lose taste and go bad quickly. However with the proper use of a vacuum food sealer, your fish and meat can stay fresh from six months to an entire year! Many people also use vacuum sealers to keep fruit fresh and great tasting! Vacuum sealers can extend the life of your vegetables, fruits, and berries by months. Finally, some people even use vacuum sealers for food in the pantry, like cookies or other similar products!

While vacuum food sealers already augment the taste and quality of your produce and food, many of them also offer potential health benefits. This is mainly because it stops the effect of oxidation. Oxidation is basically a procedure in which oxygen destroys the nutrients in food by dividing and separating them.

Finally, vacuum food sealers are great because they allow you to save tons of money, especially if you are constantly tight on money. With a vacuum food sealer, you can cook your favorite meals in advance and in greater proportions. Eat half of a dish one night, seal it, then reopen and reheat it another night. You can also marinate your meat and fish much more quickly use a vacuum sealed bag. Finally, with one of these important small kitchen appliances you shouldn’t have to throw out any of your food, none of it should ever go bad!

Selecting the Best Pressure Washing and Power Washing Equipment for Car Washing and Auto Detailing

Car washing and auto detailing professionals seeking commercial grade pressure washing and power washing equipment must evaluate the various technologies on the market while critically examining features and components. Only then can they begin to select the best pressure washing machines for their particular applications. Many in the car washing and auto detailing industry often make a mistake by selecting low-priced, under-featured power washing equipment that will absolutely not last. Pressure washing equipment pricing is a consideration, but not at the risk of negatively impacting quality and performance.

Unfortunately, many feel pressure washing and power washing machines are similar, but that could not be further from the truth. Retail stores like Lowes and Home Depot offer a variety of pressure washing equipment, but the reality is the system components, motors, pumps and other parts are just not designed to for heavy-duty usage over time, especially when one considers car washing and auto detailing. Logic rules when the one compares the pricing of one of these light-duty power washing machines to commercial and industrial pressure washing systems selling for hundreds and even thousands of dollars more.

Commercial pressure washing machines are excellent for the car washing and auto detailing industry and sold in a variety of configurations and technologies. A car washing or auto detailing business can purchase a cold, hot, or even steam power washing machine powered by electric, propane, gasoline, and even diesel technology. The pressure washing machines’ psi and flow rate will also impact car washing and overall auto detailing performance and cleaning results. The best pressure washing and power washing equipment can last for more than twenty years.

Professional car washing and auto detailing work should involve hot water power washing equipment as the goal is to wash cars and vehicles more quickly and effectively. Cold pressure washing systems simply lack the higher temperatures that are so necessary to help clean the car surfaces more deeply and dissolve substances more quickly. Only higher temperature power washing machines are capably of delivering that kind of performance.

Certainly, auto detailing and car washing success is dependent upon the customer’s satisfaction with the cleaning job. Pressure washing and power washing cleaning chemicals are a critical aspect of any car washing and auto detailing business, but the type and safety of the chemicals is important as well. The EPA closely monitors the car washing and auto detailing industry to help ensure runoff is captured without pouring down storm drains. Car washing and auto detailing professionals must employ whatever systems are necessary to ensure regulations are met, or else the EPA will impose stiff fines.

Green cleaning chemicals and solutions have become the buzzwords in the car washing and auto detailing industry. Be very careful to carefully review and evaluate the green cleaning chemicals presented to you to help ensure they perform as well as the vendors claim for your car washing and auto detailing business. The car washing and auto detailing industry is laden with traditional cleaning chemicals as well as the more popular green cleaning chemicals, but many do not work well. Your task is to weed out the good from the bad before making a decision. Nano technology is the latest offering in green cleaning chemicals and will make a dramatic impact in the car washing and auto detailing industry.

Your car washing and auto detailing business may require the use of electricity rather than fossil fuels to power as well as heat a power washing machine. Many in the car washing business wish to use pressure washing equipment with a lower flow rate, especially if drainage is a consideration within their facility. Fortunately, all electric, hot, low flow, high pressure washing equipment is available on the market to meet your needs. Often these high-performance power washing machines require a minimum of 220 volts of power, so you may need an electrician to make the necessary changes within your facility.

Make an informed decision before purchasing pressure washing and power washing machinesfor your car washing and auto detailing business. Your customers’ satisfaction and the success of your operation depend upon it.
