What I Learned From Swimming With My SmartPhone
Re: Leslie Perlow
My reaction is probably not unusual. Professor Leslie Perlow at HBS recently surveyed 1600 managers and professionals, and found that 70% said they check their smartphone within an hour of getting up; 56% check their phone within an hour of going to sleep; 48% check over the weekend, including on Friday and Saturday nights; 51% check continuously during vacation; and 44% said they would experience a great deal of anxiety if they lost their phone and couldn't replace it for a week.
