Overwhelmed by tech? You are not alone, not by a long shot. So quit beating yourself up, and hand over the wine. It’s time to get real.
Sit down… right here.. now, let’s be honest.
So maybe your your tools of choice involve fire. Or diamond blades that spin at such high speed they could rip your fingers off.

Anyway, what’s the REAL solution?
Tame the best. Learn it’s ways, become friends with it.
