I’ve just read an interesting piece from Jake Knapp.
And I’ve just deleted Twitter from my iPhone.
It’s one of the steps he recommends towards a “distraction free iPhone”. Essentially, he’s developed a Four Step Programme for iPhonoholics that can help them overcome their addiction to “everything, everywhere” and allow them to concentrate better on the here and now.
He’s been clean for a year, but he suggests you try the programme for 24 hours to see if it works. So, I am.
Other steps include disabling Mail, news feeds, social media and other distracting apps.
Jake doesn’t appear to be a luddite, just one of an increasing number who think we need to develop self-restraint when it comes to plugging-in to the vast wonder of the internet. I think he’s right.
I’ll keep you posted on my progress. Via my laptop.
