Low-Tech: Step 2 (Put Down the Phone)
I have hit the second step in the my High-Tech to Low-Tech process (name change soon as I realize this isn’t the best name)
Here is a list of my steps again…
- Turn off the TV, turn on the radio
- Put the iPhone down
- Sit down play/read to the Kid
- Read more myself
I have realized that my iPhone is my lifeline… after my wife of course. I almost can’t put this thing down. I’m sitting down watching TV, of course i’m tweeting/facebook/playing a game. I’m sitting on the porcelain throne, well of course what is the only thing to be doing during that time?
As I continue to try and push through this process, I’ve realized just how much time I am on the phone. I have got to figure out some way to put it down. My phone goes off every minute with another tweet or someone commented on facebook or there is breaking news. I need to get out of this mentality that I must know what is going on in the world and always connected.
I think I’ll need something to help out the withdrawls of this step!
