Digital diet

Nice little article in the Economist about how we’re all (admit it!) addicted to our smartphones and what’s it’s doing to us. Key part that caught my eye was about how BCG (the consulting company) is learning to forgo constant 24/7 connectivity. (This example is apparently from a forthcoming book – Sleeping with your Smartphone)

Worth a read.

p.s.: Personally, I was addicted to my blackberry for years until I broke my habit about 3 years ago. I actually feel much more productive and less stressed (all relative in consulting) than I did when I had my blackberry. The key is to let others (clients, colleagues, bosses…) know that you don’t check your email obsessively and if they have an urgent request, to do the old fashioned thing: call.
