Over-Wired?

Isn’t technology great? Between laptops, iPads and phones, you have the whole world at your fingertips. It makes life easier than ever—as long as you don’t let it get out of hand.

Ever have lunch with a friend who spent most of the time on their phone? By the time lunch was over, they had gotten a lot done, but you felt like you were hardly there.

That’s the downside of today’s wired world of business. It gives the phrase “Married to your job” a whole new meaning. It can be frustrating—especially when it affects your family life. Imagine how kids must feel when dad or mum is constantly on the phone, or computer.

There’s nothing wrong with being connected, as long as it doesn’t take over your life. Time with your family is sacred time. That’s why phones come with an “off” button.
