When I was a kid, I was told “Walk in a straight line: keeping one arm distance from the person in front of you; face down”. This was the discipline I was taught.
Today I still keep my face down for most of my activities:
Walking: Reading my emails over my phone
Sitting: Using my laptop
Is technology making sure I stay disciplined?
Today I read, “China signs deal to sell iPhones“. China has more than 600 million mobile phone accounts. Most of the users while using a smart phone are “face down”. That is what I call a discipline.
Smart phones are still evolving and some of the areas where I feel they lack are:
1. Processing Speed
2. Internet Browsing bandwidth
3. Browser capability
4. Screen Resolution (real estate limitations)
As a Knowledge Manager I believe technology is evolving to make our lives better and I have had the opportunity to realize at a very early age that technology can help maintain discipline in our lives.
