This is actually something I have been meaning to write for some time now but due to time restrictions and a new job (which has actually lead to inspiring this article) has kept me very busy over the last four weeks.
About four weeks ago a bit of an experiment was forced upon me as I left one job to go to another and I had to give back my work issued iPhone (I know, I know...). This left me without a smart phone for about 5 days which I decided to go completely phone less relying only on my wife's if I needed to get a hold of someone or otherwise wait till I was at a computer. Anyways I just wanted to share some things I learned (relearned) in the 5 day interim.
Yes, I now have a smartphone but since these five days I feel that I have been liberated by the constant barrage of notifications or at least learn to ignore them because it really is okay and these five days allowed me to relearn that.
I apologize for those of you that feel alienated but I feel much better much more productive in my real life and stale relationships have blossomed. Don't worry my internet friends I still love you, but my priorities have changed and I believe for the better. I am still here but don't expect an instant response :-)
