I’ve been away for a week and returned to just 23 emails in my inbox, an all time low. And how did I achieve such an amazing feat? With my iPhone, of course.
I was in a very low-tech cottage in the middle of nowhere, in fact all the nos. No television reception, no phone, no mobile reception in the house, no broadband/wireless connection. Communication with the outside world = nil points.
However, a step or two outside with my ‘trusty’ iPhone in hand and the world of information was my oyster. Each morning while walking the dog I would turn on and bin or file all emails that I did not need to action (“biscuits on table” etc). I didn’t get involved in any communication with anyone but knew that I would not be greeted by a full inbox on my return.
I could also check the weather for walkers, read the news headlines and then retreated into a world of wonderful isolation.
It is just a shame that my son did not find the Ordnance Survey application before he left home – might have saved a few wrong turns on the mountains.
