Time use guru Sebastian Marshall has some seriously contrarian advice to improve your life: ditch your phone. And he's got seven reason why.
Guy – “Hey dude, I’ll call you and maybe we can link up if we’re free or maybe we won’t.”
Me – “I don’t have a phone and keep a tight schedule. I’m free at Time X, Time Y, and Time Z. If you can do one, we’ll link up. If not, that’s okay too.”
Guy – “You’ve got huge balls. I wish I had huge balls.”
But you don’t need huge balls to get rid of your phone. Just do it. Get rid of it. I know you hate the phone. You’ve fantasized about getting rid of it.
