Aaaand… I’ve just switched back to my smartphone this morning.

As promised, here’s an update on my minimalist phone experiment.

After missing two important meetings because I couldn’t get used to my basic Nokia’s calendar and after losing some fun Kodak moments with my kids, I began toting both my basic Nokia and my SIMless smartphone to work meetings and outdoors. And today I decided enough is enough and switched back to my smartphone… and it’s fine. The reason I tried the minimalist route was that I wanted more quality time with my kids. Instead of a basic phone I’ll experiment with Offtime and set my phone to automatically go into minimalist mode at peak kid and creative work hours. Will report back.
