Intention and Digital Tools

I talk to a lot of people who often say a couple of things to me with regards to their smartphone/computer usage:

  1. I probably use it way too much.
  2. I really don’t think I am not that bad, so I don’t really need to curb my usage.

Most people say both, roughly in that order. I’m guilty too. It seems that in society today, people with data plans and smartphones recognize that they likely use these devices far too much. But by the same token, the usage they deem to be too much is excused away by saying it is necessary for any number of reasons. Thus, at the end of the day, no one actually thinks they should curb their usage of devices because, well, they have really gotten rid of everything nasty in their own usage.
