My life can be divided up into two eras: BIP and AIP (Before iPhone and after iPhone). For me, that was back in 2011.
At first, having a smartphone was a glorious awakening. I felt superhuman thanks to Google Maps, Yelp, and a web browser in my pocket.
But I quickly learned that smartphones are like fire: when controlled they can provide heat and help you cook a meal – but when they get out of control they can burn your entire life to the ground.
We used to leave our work at the office or at our place of business. Now it not only follows us home, but it follows in the bathroom, on our lunch break, and in our car while we commute.
