We’ve all been there; You’re at an outing or a dinner table with friends but itching to check your email or Facebook or Twitter or Instagram or Google+ or Yammer or what ever digital hit of serotonin you prefer. Have you ever “gone to the bathroom” in order to check email or come up with a socially appropriate excuse to pull out your smartphone just so you can check your @ replies on Twitter?
Spend a little bit of time looking around at any big tech gathering or conference and you can see this in action. Everyone is walking around with their eyes locked into their phones, oblivious to the crowds around. It’s an easy habit to pick up. Resist the urge.
