From the author:
Away with the slave driver!
Do not carry your phone around with you around the clock. Take at least one day off from your digital slave drivers every week.
Turn it off, or better yet, just leave it in the car or wherever.
No phone at dinner
I often do this all weekend and also recommend leaving the phone at home when you go out to dinner.
What happens if you make a call an hour later or only the next morning?
Smarphone in public is "hip"
It used to be distracting and inappropriate when people in public, for example on the train or in the airport concourse, were talking loudly.
This problem is history. Today everyone is busy with their smartphone.
It's all about the latest news
In the meantime, many people are no longer concerned about the desire to be reachable, but simply the bad habit of constantly checking with their smartphones if there is something new.
Thanks to "WhatsApp" people are sitting together at the table eating - and everyone is typing on their smartphone. A bad habit.
What happens when you are unavailable?
Often, people who are available to anyone, seven days a week and 24 hours a day, expect the same from their fellow human beings.
But if you are not the Federal Chancellor (or the Chancellor), no one should need you in the evening around 21 clock. What is going to happen if you can not be reached from time to time?
The answer: Nothing.
Discard unimportant information
The lack of digital impulses also includes: Say goodbye to information that does not directly contribute to your goals.
We read far too much information through reading: whether it's the newspaper, news portals, blogs or social networks.
If something happens, you will be informed immediately
Do not check regularly whether something exciting has happened in the world or if there is something new.
In the normal case, it is the case anyway: If something really important happens, we get it immediately.
So we do not have to actively seek that information. Also reduce the reading time for professionally relevant blogs to the bare minimum.
