The overwhelming digital life of 2013

Yes… Overwhelming, why?

The world seems to be spinning faster, the days are getting shorter and there is simply too many things to do in 24 hours…

I graduated in 2005 as an Electrical Engineer/ Communication and Electronics major, but after 5 years of study, 2000 – 2005 and a 7 years working in the Engineering Industry 2005 to 2013, I found my passion in the IT world, the world which is moving at the speed of light.

I’ve been always a nerdy techy, or that is what i thought. This is what I thought, until i saw other people’s achievements in the world of technology, there is just too much to learn, in blogging/ content management systems blogger, wordpress, drupal, joomla, wix, tumbler, there are just thousands of software platforms, there are too many programming / scripting languages, VBA, ASP.NET, PHP, C#, C++, Java, JavaScript… The mobile technology is moving too fast… I feel that my world is spinning so fast… I feel my days are too short to become a real expert in any of that, and in a very competitive world, mediocrity is a spell for failure.

How do you cope with the fast pace of technology? how do you manage to become an expert in ANYTHING AT ALL if the fast pace of technology is forcing you forward without a chance to go deep to any topic at all?
