Phone-y Pursuits

All of us are guilty of getting so caught up in our phones that we miss the good that happens.

  • My young NYU students are impressed by the metric that indicates that out of 100 things that will happen to us only 4 could be considered bad.
  • YET our minds treat every concern as bad and we pay an emotional price for thinking that way.
  • We own our phones — they don’t own us – no one every died from missing a message.
  • According to research by nurses, those who have entered hospice in advance of their death had regrets that they didn’t spend more time with the people who mattered most in their lives.
