So I was forced to go with out my Iphone. I was resolved to go Old School. It was tough. I heard phantom rings and vibrations. I kept checking my pockets so that I could get my Iphone and check for email. But by the third day I started feeling good. The sense of urgency to life was gone. I spent more time getting things done, meeting with people face to face, actually being engaged in a conversation with out being rude and checking for messages. My kids absolutely loved it.
All good things come to an end. I got a call from the Apple store that a phone had arrived.
Like a true junkie I dropped everything and raced to pick it up.
But the same sense of urgency that I had prior to this experiment seems to be gone. I’ve now taken to leaving the Iphone in the Car during meeting and family engagements.
