My brother proudly showed me his new Droid smart phone. I got weak in the knees. He’s never used a Smart Phone or computer before and out of the blue he asked me how he could improve his life using this new device and its capabilities. That was a really big question. He really meant, ‘what kind of entertainment features can I load to have fun?’

I hadn’t quite figured out what he was asking right away, but I was thinking he wanted the same things I want: productivity, and greater efficiency by connecting to his community of family, friends and customers. Clearly, he’s part of a growing consumer group, discontent with the sluggish support efforts from old-line cell phone operating systems, and he is surfing on the surge in demand for Smart Phones.

I took a deep breath because I was thinking “Do either of us know what he wants? He thinks this droid thingy will change his life, and I’m thinking it would be a frozen place in hell if this device would work for him the way mine works for me.”

As I showed him some of the things I do with mine, I could see him becoming frustrated. I noticed his attitude shifted to anger because he didn’t know what to ask, and how to implement things like setting up a password account, going to the app store, searching for apps, and installing them.

Adapting To New Technology

It was too much to absorb. The shrimp kabobs on the grill were getting done fast. The family was totally ready to have dinner. We were running out of time, and neither of us could figure out what would make our short conversation a win-win. We dropped our pursuit. Had we been grilling steaks, here’s three entertainment ideas that I would’ve set up for him.

Habits and Our Smart Phones    A crisis event  will happen to you or someone you know when the smart phone gets lost.  Before it happens, that is an opportunity to raise your awareness and start something new.  You want to enjoy the benefits of having a cell phone, but it carries some responsibility that most people don’t want to accept.  Yesterday, I was reminded of these little short-cut habits when my brother asked me to help him get acquainted with his new smart phone.

Time Travel and Your Cell

Most of us consider having our phone vital to our livelihood, because it extends our ability to live our purpose.  We’ve all been cut off from using our mobile phone. Note the feelings you have when that idea takes root.   That’s a fertile subject for some people, addressed in an article by Susan Weinschenk, Ph.D.  You don’t need to dump your phone to go into the present, but it allows you to traverse the past and the future to be better in the present.

3 Solutions

The anxious feelings you have when your gadget gets lost is the perfect signal that you need to take precautionary steps in case it happens in the future.  You wouldn’t leave your home or office without charging it first, right? Oh, are you one of the few of us who forgets to charge it sometimes? Let’s save that topic for another post.  Most of us charge it before going mobile.  Now, it’s time for us to extend that action step further with some protection recommendations to use.

  1. Password to log into the device
  2. Mobile security software to protect your data
  3. Lost and found item recovery service to return your device

So, you’re a bit anxious about a lost cell phone or smart phone?  Take some of the stress out, and enjoy your mobile device. Be sure to take these three steps, today.  And please, feel free to share a personal mobile phone crisis.
