We’re really good at making life unnecessarily complicated.
Once upon a time, I’d carry the weight of the world on my shoulders. Not even metaphorically, though — if you want to know how notorious I’ve been for carrying everything but the kitchen sink on my back, here’s a diagram!
I never made things easy on myself — need to take some sweet baby photos? Bust out the SLR, charge the flash, adjust the diffuser and capture that perfect moment. Despite the world obviously moving toward single devices that do all the things, for some reason I felt it necessary to carry a phone, a tablet, my laptop and my drawing tablet with me wherever I went… but for what? In case I needed to hack a mainframe with a friend on the phone while reading an ebook for instructions, drawing schematics and playing a ridiculously amazing soundtrack? Seriously?
The more I clung to my old and outdated ways, the more I realized all my time was going into things that I could do way faster with a device that’d just handle everything for me. As a father, husband, blogger, and a very busy Team Lead in my 9-5 life, I — quite literally — need every second I can get… and the Samsung Galaxy S6 was the perfect device for making my life easier!
