The average American checks their phone 80 times a day – we do it:
- When we are expecting a message or want to see what’s coming in,
- When we are bored during unoccupied moments,
- Before or during tedious tasks as a reward,
- In socially awkward situations, waiting for a friend, standing on the elevator.
So……what would happen if we spent half as much time reading the room and picking up communications cues from our work companions as we do paying attention to our phone companions?!
