There is no shortage of advice about how to make your phone less addictive. Turn off a bunch of notifications. Flip on Do Not Disturb. Use Black & White mode. Delete social networking apps. It’s all good advice, but for me, having that giant, heavy glass brick in my pocket is a constant reminder of what’s at my fingertips.

What I’ve really grown to want is less at my fingertips.

Without spoiling the end plan, this has been an ongoing question I’ve had—if certain features/apps/etc. aren’t there, will that cause me to avoid messing with them if I have a moment of downtime? Nonetheless, I’m fascinated by the idea and will be eager to see how this goes.
