Don’t completely rely on your cell phone

Dear Max,

We’re at a point in the history of the world when more people have a cell phone than have access to fresh water. It’s an epidemic. 

Cell phones are amazing things – I use my iPhone 5s to write these notes to you. However, they can get in the way of real living. At restaurants and everywhere in between, hoards of people stare lifeless into their phones while sitting at the table together. 

When you’re off the clock, it’s okay to go off the grid. You don’t have to check your phone every 5 minutes. Try leaving it in your bedroom and doing something for a few hours. It’s liberating. There is more to life than pixels.

Love,

Dad
