I never was any good with computers and maybe that’s why I always had a job that involved a lot of travelling and talking to people, instead of sitting in front of a desk, using a computer. But, there comes a time when technology catches up with you, and there’s not a whole lot you can do about it. That’s just what happened to me.
My company decided we all needed to organize our time better. I’m sure a lot of people were slacking on the job, but I sure wasn’t. Besides the laptop and company phone all employees were given when they were hired, the company decided to give us something else, as well. It was a small device, and I must confess I had no idea how that was supposed to help us organize our time better.
We were showed how to use it, and we were told to note down in it everything we do, from contacts to appointments. As I said, I try to avoid technology as much as I could, so it took me a while until I got used to this one. There were times when I forgot to charge it, but after I found a car charger for it everything seemed easy and cool. Soon it became part of my everyday routine.
That’s how I got my hp ipaq 211 handheld, the gadget that knows everything. Everything we do, I mean, as we have to keep it updated daily, so that the company could check the amount of work each of us does. Due to the HP PDA people started working extra hard. I have always worked really hard, so nothing has changed in my daily schedule.
In fact, something has changed thanks to this device. The management got to know how devoted to work I have been, so after a while I got a promotion. I guess I owe my promotion and my car to my PDA, not bad, right?
