From the time we wake up until the time we go to bed, there’s that one magical “thing” that we reach for first and set down last. Can you quickly guess what that is? Of course you can! Our phones, duh! I am even reluctant to call them “smartphones” seeing that it’s pretty much the majority out there to begin with. Well, at least in North America.

I read a great article earlier this year that I really wanted to reference this morning with you all in thought. You see, many argue that the phone is the crippling of society. I feel, on the other hand, it can truly be empowering. Like anything else in life, even too much of a good thing can be bad. (eg. Water, food, and exercise) So when’s enough, enough? When have we gone overboard and how do we know that we are truly addicted?

Chris Matyszczyk wrote a good article back in Jan. 2nd, 2018 (attached above) and I wanted to read with you all some excerpts from the article and discuss aloud. As always, please share your thoughts here or in social media. Happy Listening on this nice Saturday!

Here we are on January 1st, 2018. The best way to kick off the new year is to get right to it. Without further ado, I am posting my thoughts here and why I’m getting this kicked off. There will be a bit to learn as I navigate uncharted waters for me but no worries. Committed and looking forward to a GREAT 2018!

Good morning πŸŒžβ˜€οΈπŸ˜ƒ from Orlando!!!! Today marks a month from the most painful day of my life. I have been a bit away (as you can tell) and had a difficult summer going into the fall.

My wife introduced me to this gentle Kyle Mork who himself has an awesome podcast. As I reflect this morning and start a bit of work, later this evening I want to share my thoughts and what I have been through with you along with a link to his podcast. Stay tunes as this has helped me face a few challenges while reinvigorating how I feel about putting myself out there.

All I can say is WOW. I mean, I get it. People have relationships with coworkers. No surprise when you spend the majority of your time with those individuals. To pressure people into sexual acts (and he used his position to do so) is just wrong.

Glad to see these guys being called out. Reading this article, I think the one thing (even though there were many shocking ones) that made my jaw drop was the mentioned of ‘being his property.’ Just… wow. No words.

What are your thoughts in what’s happening around the world with the #MeToo movement?

😭 ❀️ Just nobody in the current line up like him. Not even close.

The comedian recalled the time McCain joined Jamie Foxx on the Apollo Theater stage, where he did the robot dance during a charity event: “[H]e looks so alive and so happyβ€”it looked like so much fun.”

Sad to see John McCain has passed away. We may not always agree πŸ’― with what any individual does, but to me, he was a great human being. πŸ’” ❀️ ✌🏽
