Doing Without Your Phone

 

phone

 

 

Just read this post by Jay Thompson and wanted to share it with everyone. 

Maybe we can learn to be just a little less reliant on our electronic leashes and focus more on building real, face-to-face relationships.''

 

 

And my note to him...

Dear Jay,
What a delightful recount of your 5-day experience without a phone. So much wisdom to share. I have never lost my phone, but I could feel your frustration and even your relief all at the same time. Everyone should read this. Thanks for sharing.

All the best!

Hello Margaret- - -I find it rather amazing how accustomed to certain "things" we simply can't imagine life without them. Your post reminded me the "anger" when MLS books were eliminated.   How soon we forget!

Ok, my heart skipped a beat (not in a good way, more like a bad cardiac episode way) with the title of this post!  Five days without a phone - good grief! You might as well cut off my right arm!  But out of curiosity, I'll check it out. :-)

Margaret- thank you for sharing this!  I would find it hard to be without my phone for even an hour.

Michael Jacobs How did we manage to adjust without the MLS books? How about the ADC map books?

Kathy Streib We are so dependent on our devices.

Oh my gosh, I can't imagine, Margaret! Love your term, "digital leash" - that is SO true! It can be stressful to have lost it but, also liberating to be freed from that digital leash too!

Debe Maxwell, CRS It is a great term ' digital leash"...but the credit goes to Jay.
