This is a beautiful movement. As we become more and more aware that more is not always better, people have begun to innovate in the other direction, by asking:
- How can we do less?
As all productivity folks (or, spiritual teachers) have pointed out, our attention is a critical resource. The mind’s temptation to expend attention everywhere only dissipates us.
“We felt overwhelmed by our phones so we built a better one. Smart technology re-imagined for a less distracted life.”
“Your phone away from your phone… designed to be used as little as possible.”
“The more our phones do, the more they demand of us. Sometimes it’s good to take a break. But until now, the only alternative to hyper-connected smartphones has been the kind of phone you find at the back of a drawer.”
