If you have an iPhone, you’ve probably been a victim of the Red Dot.
Oh you know, the red dot that Apple calls “notifications” on your badge.
My bet is you have most enabled but if you don’t there’s probably one, you definitely allow…the mail icon.
You know the circle with an envelope that usually has a red dot in the right corner with a number.
Now I know you think you know what the number is. But what if I told you it’s not there to help you but to distract you. Seriously. Stop reading right now and see what the number on our red dot is. Now see if you can ignore that red dot.
My challenge – either disable the red dot or simple refuse to give into it. Oh, sure it will grow and possibly go from single to double perhaps even triple digits.
But that’s okay. After all, it’s only a red dot.
