The Changes Brought By A Piece Of Glass

iPhoneA piece of glass that weighs a few ounces how much of an impact or change could this possibly bring to our lives?

Who would have imagined ten to fifteen years ago how much we all feel our piece of glass, our cell phone, must be in our hand, pocket or purse all of the time. Who would have said they have the ability and desire to buy this 3 inch by 5 inch item for hundreds of dollars and to agree to pay a monthly fee to use the device for years to come?

The cell phone has changed our lives. How we are always looking at text messages and responding with our own. Similarly with social media, emails, a variety of apps and more.

It is the expectation we will respond to a message at any time of the day or night.

On a more positive note we are able to obtain directions from a voice once we place our intended destination into the phone and ask for the directions live. Have access at our fingertips to music, photos, reading material, answers to questions and more.

If we want to go to see a movie we are able to check and see where it is playing, the show times, directions and possibly download a discount coupon right on the face of the phone.

Let’s not get hung up on the type, brand or style. Android or iPhone or other. At the end of the day the ability to communicate utilizing the device overall has impacted our lives.

In your line of work or any line of work, communication skills are absolutely critical to success. We learn at a fairly young age to hold back a bit and not say certain words or phrases even though they are at the tip of our tongue at a specific moment.
