No phone at home [EXPERIMENT] – Day 27ish

It’s officially been 27 days since I started this experiment. The ishiness of it, though, is that I haven’t kept to it the whole time.

For the few two weeks, I stayed pretty faithful. After that, I started getting back on my phone for a few things here and there. Pretty soon, I was back where I started before the experiment.

What’s curious, though, if that I liked the results. I liked not being on my phone. I spend more meaningful time online when I’m on my laptop instead of my phone. And when I’m conscious of it, I spend more time doing things offline as well

At this point, I’m not sure where I’ll go from here. I’d like to say I’m going to stay off my phone moving forward, only using it for calling and returning texts instead of mindlessing scrolling through Facebook or whatever. But judging by the past few weeks, I’m not sure that’s what will happen.

We’ll see. I think each time I try to audit my time more, I notice an improvement in how I’m spending it.

In fact, I just saw Gary Vaynerchuk talking about auditing your 7pm to 2am. That’s what this all comes down to. How am I using the time that’s not specifically scheduled for anything? Am I using it wisely? Am I using it the best way possible?
