So this is the time of the year for predictions. Here are some behaviors and trends I see coming or going or maybe some things I want to occur. We all want to create our own versions of the future.
Productive people will increase the amount of silence in their lives. I hear, read, and see little smatterings of this in life and in the media.
Messages about no cell phones or photos are increasingly more prevalent on the bottom of menus. I was having lunch at a difficult to get a reservation restaurant the other day and the recently seated customer next to me asked the waiter about their Wi-Fi. The waiter turned and responded with a certain air of smugness that we don’t have Wi-Fi sir. I wish he would have added Monsieur.
The waiter was only one of a number of No Wi-Fi snobs I have met in the past year.
