You know what you should do?
You should keep a packet of thank you notes in your desk drawer at work. You should also keep stamps.
When someone does something nice for you, write them a real thank you note. Be sincere. Be thankful. Show them that you took notice, and appreciated whatever it was they did.
It might make someone’s day.

You will never be as good at a touch device(iPhone,iPad,Android) as you can be with a keyboard, guitar, shovel, shirt button, or clutch. You cannot develop muscle memory or intuition without consistent haptic feedback – and they don’t provide it (yet). That may be why working with touch machines feels so cumbersome – you can do very little without looking at it and constantly performing homing actions. Jarring.

Try this for a few weeks and see if it sticks.
- Go to your mobile device and turn off all audio notifications for email.
- Turn off vibrate for email.
- Turn off push notifications for your apps and games.
- Be very deliberate on what you allow to interrupt you.
- Protect your focus.
- Write thoughtful responses – not just quick ones.
Just because the feature exists doesn’t mean you must use it.
Chances are good that nobody will notice or care that your response time went from a few minutes to a few hours.
