Why did you buy a smartphone?
Was it because it’s the cool thing to do, and you don’t want to be called a laggard?
Maybe you had a fit of “app envy” . . .
Did you think it would make YOU more efficient?
Did you buy it so more people could reach you more easily?
or . . . Did you buy it in a delusion moment of grandeur thinking that it would make you more productive so you can serve more people.
What’s the result?
Is your smartphone one of your productivity tools?
or . . .
Are you a slave of your smartphone?
Now that most people have them (smartphones), I think the smartpeople are the ones who “get” the real benefit owning that handheld bundle of joy . . . It’s for YOUR convenience . . . and NOT the convenience of others.
If you have one, and it’s being a distraction from doing more of what matters, throw the damn thing away.
If you have one, and it’s becoming other people’s tool to control your every moment – drop it in the toilet.
Think about it . . . Is that thing making your life easier or not?
If not . . . there’s only one person to blame . . . YOU!
You can serve OH-so-many more other people when that pocket computer begins to work for ya . . .
We all can’t wait for you to come back to the real world with us.
