"What is the sign of a professional?
– Going from bullshit product to services to product to SaaS product. (Corollary: the reverse is amateur hour).
– Cutting costs every day.
– Selling every day, every minute.
– When you have a billion in revenues, staying focused. When you have zero revenues, staying unfocused and coming up with new ideas every day.
– Saying “no” to people who are obvious losers.
– Saying “yes” to any meeting at all with someone who is an obvious winner.
– Knowing how to distinguish between winners and losers (subject of an entire other post but in your gut you know — trust me)."

The first is to require the phone to automatically alert every person you’re texting or emailing at the moment you use your phone while moving. As we’ve seen, knowingly interacting with someone who is driving is a crime in many locales, and yes, you should go to jail for it. We need to change the cultural imperative, and we can’t do that with laws alone and we can’t do that with movies. Technology, though, can fix what it broke.

The second solution is even simpler: when a phone is moving, don’t permit it to accomplish certain tasks.
