In the post that I read, Marc Sparks shared how there are times when using a phone is just plain rude. There are times when using a phone is unprofessional. There are times when using a phone can make me appear to be someone that I am not – someone who is rude, impolite, and unprofessional. I don’t want to appear to be someone who does not care about others, and I don’t want my obsession with my phone to end up costing me a job. The blog post that I read shared how I should not answer my phone when I am in any kind of a meeting, and I think that this is advice that I should be following. My phone is important to me at times, and I really want to have it on hand, but I need to ignore it when I am in a professional situation and taking part in a meeting. Marc Sparks is someone who I can look up to, and I want to follow the advice that he has given me in this regard.
