I think we’re underestimating the importance of continued serendipitous day dreaming. Creative thoughts and problem solving insights have often come to me while laying in bed, walking to the coffee store, or while sitting at a red light. But so many of these moments are being interrupted by the crack cocaine that is my iPhone. I wish I had the will power to not give in; but short of that, I’m going to experiment with giving it up and going to a dumb old flip phone. I did this about a year ago and lasted a month – until I took a water ski trip into Sacramento. The last second economist in me couldn’t take it.
Wish me luck!
