Perseverance

Last month, I went back to using an Android (Sony Xperia Z) from using an iPhone 5 (reasons apart). As I moved through the transition I realized while Android had a lot of features, the feel of an Apple was missing. At this point, I was forced to using my phone. But, this “forced behavior” essentially told me to ask myself a more fundamental question – “How was using my devices?” I had an iPad mini that I had purchased for “something”, and then I had an iPod that I used for listening to songs and during workout and then here I had this phone as well.

In the past, I was doing pretty much everything on my iPhone – check emails, read blogs, play games, etc. Now, given that I didnt like my phone too much, I decided this was time to get my iPad into the mix and I decided that I will not configure emails on my Android phone (BTW – this allowed me to use some of advanced features of my phone). I ended up installing emails 4 times and every time I installed it, i went back to removing it in matter of minutes. I had to force myself // I had to push myself to try the change.

And now here I am 3 weeks out when I have successfully got accustomed to not using emails on my phone // there is a specific usage I have for my phone and then iPad is utilized a lot more // my iPod is not used for training purposes (yeah i started to run again). Most importantly, i am not hooked on to my office all the time like i was on my cell phone. I pick up my iPad soemtimes when I want to and I am sort of happy to put the worries of office in my bag and allow someone to call me if there is a fire.

Today, I am changing yet another habbit // when I am trying to do is rather annoying but I am going to stay with it and see if I can change yet 1 more thing in my life.
