Got a lot to do today?
Turn off your phone! Or better yet, leave it at home.
If you absolutely need it, put it on silent and tucked out of sight, and use it to call, not to check to see if people have texted you.
Just like email, in our wonderfully convenient digital age, sometimes our mobile devices can do more productivity harm than good.
So stop checking your screens, remember that your friends love you, and get to work!
P.S. Edit: Just heard Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” playing in the supermarket. That song wouldn’t have happened if its protagonist had simply turned off her phone. It’s not just about work. It’s about living life. And clubbing, in this particular case.
