Phone Notifications are Evil

When we respond to notifications, we respond to other people’s agendas.

The Pros

We pick our phones deliberately

We get into “the zone” more effortlessly

We respond to several notifications at once, hence more efficient

We feel less FOMO over time

We feel less overwhelmed

We live in the moment

The Cons

We need the grit to stop checking our phones

We miss essential notifications

The Verdict

So, put the phones on mute, shall we?
