“My name is Jerry and I am addicted to my phone.”
I am not sure if there are support groups for people who are addicted to their phone but if there is I should probably drop in on one… you know… just to check it out.
I get a lot of information on my phone throughout the day.
On an average day I get about:
100 Work Emails
75 Person Emails
25 Mentions on Twitter
So that is easily over 200 *Dings* a day I get on my phone. When my phone *Dings* I look at. In the Car, in the office, in the bathroom, while watching TV, in a meeting…. If it dinged I looked at it to make sure it wasn’t important.
Earlier this week my phone died on me and I needed to reload it with a new ROM. While configuring it I did something I thought I would never do and did this:
That’s right. No Notifications. No More *DINGS*. So now I have to look at my phone for information. I am a little slower responding to emails and texts but I glance at my phone ever 15 minutes or so and it seems to be working out. I seem to be getting more work done by not constantly being interrupted with *DINGS* of information. I am not as fast to respond texts but really how fast do you need to respond to “C DA GAME LAST NITE?!”
We will see how long this lasts.
