Is your smart phone out-smarting you?

This is a sequel to yesterday's post Say goodbye to being time poor.

One of the great time suckers, if we allow it, is technology.  Overuse can ruin our lives.

Just yesterday I saw a man come within an inch of being run over by a taxi.  He was paying attention to his phone instead of the traffic lights.

In the coffee shop where I am writing this there are several groups of people obviously colleagues/friends at tables.  No one is communicating with those around them.  They are all on their phones and most are not talking on them.

Smart phones like a lot of technology are great additions to our lives.  If we are being controlled by them however we are being out-smarted.

Resolve today to see the vast amount of technology available to us as simply tools we can use to make our lives easier nothing more.

Focus today and every day on real human connection and keep your use of technology in perspective.

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
