How Many Times A Day Do You Check Your Phone?

September 16, 2014

CheckyChecky answers a simple question: how many times a day do I check my phone?  If you’re anything like me, the number is high and teeters on the brink of addiction. Yesterday I took BART from San Francisco to Berkeley.  I checked my phone at just about every stop.  A total of 10 times in less than 30 minutes.  This new app is much needed in our technology addicted culture.  I can only speak for myself, and my sense is that once I can actually observe this disturbing habit using data, I can monitor myself in a more mindful way.  This hyper-vigilance around instant gratification is unhealthy.  The way forward is to free up time that’s wasted on impulse phone checking and use it for more productive endeavors, allowing a sort of spaciousness to emerge.  From that expansive place, creativity can flow.  Tapping into this creative wellspring is good for business.
