Marcus T. Wright

Is Technology Helping or Hurting Your Relationships?

Daniel Burrus | Posted 08.20.2014 | Business
Daniel Burrus

While being connected is good, too much of a good thing can backfire. Being constantly connected has made us not as effective at problem solving, not as good at innovation and creativity, and not so great with friends and family. Is this technology's fault? No!
