Back away from the Smartphone.

Via on Aug 11, 2011

You’re doing it wrong.

All together now: do one thing at a time.

Hang. Catch up. Eat. Talk. Call. Text. Walk.

Not too things. Doing too things at the same thyme makes u dummer.

I know, easier said than done (says I while drinking third Americano of day). Doing one thing at a time, we do it better. It’s better for business to be less “efficient” and more “present.” It’s better for love, and saves us klesha and forgotten to-dos and it’s better for our heart and stress levels. It’s better.

  1. […] Be still. Meditate. Be quiet. Shut your thoughts off (and your iPhone, and your laptop, and your music, and your television) for at least ten minutes. See what’s going on in […]

  2. […] You could do all that, but you’d be doing it wrong. […]

    Don't do "too things at once. Too things makes us dumber"…
    Were you doing two things at once when you wrote this?
