Cell phone obsession.

88 percent of Holesh’s users were spending an average of a quarter of their waking lives on their phones! More than any other daily activity, except sleeping.

Each month, almost one hundred hours were lost to checking email, texting, playing games, surfing the web, checking bank balances, and so on.

Too many other stimuli.

Diminished Attention Spans

The way that cell phones deliver information to us, in short, fast bursts, and with lots of enticing distraction, (and this, combined with our obsession with our cell phones so we use them all the time) is winnowing away our ability to focus deeply on things for a long period of time.

Not that interested.

Coddled and Closed-Off to Opinions of Others.

Not putting in the effort.

Self-centered, the main interest being themselves.
