As we were rushing around to get out the door for our 4th of July weekend trip to the lake, I misplaced my iPhone and was forced to leave without it...for 4 days! What at first seemed like a curse, ended up being a blessing!

After the initial panic wore off, I actually felt free and liberated...and had lots of fun with Michelle, the girls, and our friends on the trip (probably more fun than I would have had if my phone was with me).

In this video I talk about this experience and the challenge that many of us face in today's world with our seeming dependence on our phones and technology in general.
