178 Tommy Sobel - Phone Habits for Healthy People

Tommy Sobel has a unique resume: he was a published student of neuroscience, he's been Steven Spielberg's right-hand man on set, and he became the top executive at Amblin Partner's New Media division (formally DreamWorks Studios). He knows very well just how enticing our phones can be (it was his job to keep us glued to them through his company's content).  Now, he's left that all behind to help us have a healthier relationship with our phone and technology.  He's founded, which shows us how through one simple phone hack, we can reclaim some of our time back and truly connect with the world and the people in it.

In this episode, I sit down with Tommy to talk about lessons he's learned along the way going from student, to set assistant, to new media executive, to social entrepreneur.  We talk about how his new phone usage habits affect his relationships, his business, and how we can benefit from the same.  You'll also see how a simple object as a pen can make all the difference in your life.
