The things your “SMART” phone has replaced…


What was it like in the old days when we only had a landline? Some might say life was simple and uncomplicated. But, this quote John C. Maxwell: “Change is inevitable. Growth is optional.” really says it all. The old adage of “adapt or die” has its origins in Darwinism and states that if an organism does not adapt to its environment, it will die. Only the strongest will survive, and those are the ones that transform themselves to live within a new ecosystem. Personally, I love the convenience of having so many useful tools incorporated into one handy device. The more mundane tools we can replace with our phones equals less stuff and less clutter in our lives. It has been refreshing to purge the clunky old telephone books and know that I am always within arms reach of a flashlight. And what a breeze it is to pull up the weather forecast without using a TV. Yes, sometimes I miss the days when the milkman delivered... but now I long for the driverless car!
