Are we addicted to our mobile devices or is there another problem? This goes way beyond staying connected to work and our email. I think there is some element of boredom. Maybe there is something to the idea of fear of missing out (FOMO). I see people walking their dogs in the morning and paying more attention to their phone than to the dog. Why can’t they just enjoy outside, look around and savor the time without being connected? When a plane lands and everyone turns their phones on, how many people go straight to Facebook? This is boredom, not progress. We are not children. We don’t have to be entertained every moment of the day. And don’t even get me started on teenagers and millennials.
