One of my favorite authors and researchers on SmartPhone use Cal Newport posted an article about the head coach of the Arizona Cardinals that now allows his players to take a “Phone Break” during their meetings.

“You start to see kind of hands twitching and legs shaking, and you know they need to get that social media fix,” he helpfully explained.

Disciplined to make it to the NFL, but not enough to put your phone away for an hour?

Time magazine had an article earlier this year talking about how the Texas Tech Red Raiders suffered a bad stretch during which they lost three road games in a row.

Looking for solutions, their captain, Norense Odiase, instituted a new rule: the night before away games, players would surrender their smartphones. The idea was to minimize distractions and improve sleep.

The team’s coach, Chris Beard, who had already banned smartphones at team meals, liked this idea and extended it even further: the phone ban held every night while the team was on the road, whether or not there was a game the next day.

It worked.

Texas Tech went on a 14-1 run after the ban, making their way to the big game and well……you know what happened from there.
