Technology – sometimes your friend, sometimes your enemy.
There are so many fun ways this can be your hobby. It doesn’t matter how old you are, or if you grew up with computers or not, just go for it. Jump in and learn.
Here are 5 reasons to make technology your hobby.
1. Stay Current
As long as you’re not dead, you can learn something new. Technology is not just for the young, it’s for everyone.
In order to stay current with how our world is changing, you need to learn about technology. Don’t let technology pass you by.
Select one from this list below and get started today!
2. Learning Technology is Good for Your Brain
Hobbies overall are good for your brain, but learning a new technology is right up there at the top.
Learn as much as you can about computers, smart phones, etc. and how they work and you can rule the world!
Keep your brain active (make it hurt!) working as you learn this new skill.
3. Connects You to Others
Some technology hobbies can keep you connected to friends and family that live far away. Social sharing sites can help you stay up to date with the people you want to stay involved with.
There are also great hobbies like RC boats, cars, drones and planes that have their own communities where you can interact and learn with others.
4. Leave a Digital Legacy
When you are gone, what mark did you leave? Well, you can always leave a digital legacy.
Start a blog, write an eBook, create videos or take and post pictures.
You will be immortalized online. 🙂
5. Impress Your Friends and Family
When someone from the Baby Boomer generation accomplishes something with technology, prepare to be praised. Why?
Because we didn’t grow up with a computer at home or a smart phone in our hand. We have to learn everything about it.
Remember, you aren’t “too old” and it’s never too late.
So go. Learn. Impress.
