Tonight, I moved the computer to a strategically better place, which happens to be the, yes, dinette set in my apartment!
Let’s do a “SWOT” analysis:
Strengths: The computer is now nearby my 1981 print Britannica set (as well as a useful supplement to the modern Britannica internet service) and many other great books. It also serves as further discipline for the lust issues (sparing the gory details, of course!) which has been, thanks to faith in God, plummeting. And of course, many other great websites. My room without the computer allows for quality study without the cares of the internet or other computer applications (the king of them, in my opinion, is most likely Facebook).
Weaknesses: Many other books are in my own room, so both sites can mutually could be “lending libraries.” In other words, not only does a book taken from the bedroom need to be returned, but a material taken to the bedroom must also be returned.
Opportunities: Move as many books as possible from my room to this “information station,” as well as obtaining more bookcases as appropriate. This allows one library per my apartment. When I want to get down and dirty with such a reading or study, I shall take it to my room until I’m finished, and thus return them to the (single) home library.Threats: While there is no loan period (after all, it’s not a true lending library, it’s hyperbole), they should be put back when I am done using them. The key enemy here is laziness, an trait that makes the autism spectrum a liability. Also, I put so much debt (not in money, but progress) toward books when the earlier portions are attacked by others. Therefore, willpower aided by God and His Word will get me success.
Interestingly enough, this SWOT analysis was done after the move. I must be a good strategic planner already! Yet, a SWOT analysis is a very helpful tool!
One thought on “Putting Technology Where it (Could) Belong”
Awesome! A fresh look is always refreshing. Love the S.W.O.T, also.
