Am I TOO Connected?
Many of you are, and if you're honest with yourself, I
hope you'll realize it. Let the phone ring. Don't take your cell phone in the
car. Leave it in the car when you go into the store. Remember, things that are
too connected blow fuses and don't last as long.
Are we too connected? I for one don't always answer my cellphone, I don't always return sms messages, I'm happy to let the phone ring when i don't feel like answering it. But I know others who simply must answer whenever anyone tries to contact them, I've known people who are offended when their cellphone calls go unanswered.
Are we too connected?.. Every child has a cellphone these days it seems, training young minds to be a part of our 'global community' from earlier and earlier ages. Am I alone in believing that the birth of the 'global community' is heralding the death of 'real community' ?
