Imagine you had an assistant who followed you around everywhere. She’d sit with you as you spoke with friends, clients and loved ones, and anytime anyone outside of the room wanted your attention, she’d loudly interrupt. How quickly would you fire this person?
And yet, we constantly let our smartphones interrupt our personal time. Research even shows that leaving your phone on the table during lunch “has negative effects on closeness, connection, and conversation quality.”
Don’t let the world’s rudest assistant continue to interrupt your quality face-to-face time. Keep your phones off the table for instantly happier conversations.
