Remember when you’d go for a walk pre-smartphone?
No music streaming. No social messaging. No push notifications. Just you and your thoughts.
A space in time to learn what you think. To chew on a problem. To explore an idea.
We don’t spend as much time with our own thoughts as we used to. Many of us can’t even go to the bathroom without a smartphone anymore.
We used to give important work more time ￼and attention than we do now, because now we give the margins to Big Tech.
If it’s still important work we’re doing, how would it grow and develop if we were to simply give it back the attention we used to give it?
