Become Tech Savvy: How to setup automatic backups in macOS and iOS

First time checking out this series? You’ll get the most value by starting with the first article and here is the series overview.

Note for regular readers, the already tech savvy, and IT professionals: this is designed as a resource you can give to those you are helping or for those looking to become tech savvy on their own.

So far we’ve covered why you can and should be tech savvy, how to get in the right state of mind, and how to transform your limiting beliefs and set some stakes as you work towards the goal of using technology with confidence and ease. These aspects are the hidden forces that hold us back from achievement, so with all of them addressed we’re all set to move forward with strategy.

Like I mentioned in the last article, I’ve created the Become Tech Savvy strategy with Tim Ferriss’ DiSSS approach. The intentional design of deconstruction, selection, and sequencing of this series is what makes it unique and will give you results.
