Less Me More We

Less Me More We

I thought I couldn't live without my smartphone.

But I had lived quite a while without one.

I had lived from 7/23/70 to 6/29/07 without one.

That's 36 years, 11 months and 6 days.

Or 13,490 days without a smartphone.

I got through school without one.

I became a doctor without one.

I got married without one.

All without smartphone use.

All without smartphone dependency.

All without psychological reliance on these devices.

All without constantly needing to be connected with my smartphone.

So I did an experiment.

I was my own guinea pig.

No smartphone for a week.

It was awesome.

More presence.

More connection.

Less me.

More we.
