Keep That Phone Away

12:00 AM

I am so glad someone finally said it. As much as I love Social Media and love being connected, I hate it when you are having a conversation with someone and he/she is not even looking at you. This is however in a social scenario, I cannot even imagine this behavior in professional world and business meetings. Below is an excerpt from an article which I think everyone should read. 
Why do so many people—especially successful people—find smartphone use in meetings to be inappropriate? When you take out your phone it shows a:
  • Lack of respect. You consider the information on your phone to be more important than the conversation at hand, and you view people outside of the meeting to be more important than those sitting right in front of you.
  • Lack of attention. You are unable to stay focused on one thing at a time.
  • Lack of listening. You aren’t practicing active listening, so no one around you feels heard.
  • Lack of power. You are like a modern-day Pavlovian dog who responds to the whims of others through the buzz of your phone.
  • Lack of self-awareness: You don't understand how ridiculous your behavior looks to other people.
  • Lack of social awareness: You don't understand how your behavior affects those around you.
