You may not have a deep love for technology, but you better get used to it. CEOs that resist changing will be left in the dust even quicker as we continue integrating tech into our lives.

As a business mentor, I recommend you and your employees learn one tech shortcut each week. Here are shortcuts to Outlook, Gmail and Apple, but these are just the beginning. Shortcuts and quick, savvy web navigation have proven to be faster and increase office productivity.
If something tech related feels complicated or expensive, it probably is. Look for simple ‘tech hacks’ via bloggers and Twitter search to help you before you try and figure it out. ‘R&D’ (rip off and duplicate) should be your mantra when finding tech solutions to make your company faster.
