CBS News Graphic: The hardest piece of advice to live by | http://www.cbsnews.com/news/60-minutes-vanity-fair-poll-advice/
If you could travel back in time, and somehow NOT destroy the present and cause the rise of the machines, what would you tell yourself as a teenager?
A new survey asked people what ONE piece of advice they wish they could go back and give to themselves as a teenager. And it had to be vague life advice, not like, “Invent Google.” Here are the top 10 . . .
- Get a better education, 16%.
- Be bolder and stronger reaching for your goals, 11%.
- Plan better for the future, 9%.
- Relationship advice, 7%.
- Slow down, and take it easy, 6%.
- Live life to the fullest, 5%.
- Be true to yourself, 5%.
- Don’t do dumb things, 4%.
- Don’t drink, smoke, take drugs, or party, 4%.
- Listen to your parents and respect your elders, 3%.
And 1% of people say their life has been perfect, no advice necessary.
I know that telling you to put down your phone is like telling you to chop off your left arm . . . but you REALLY should do it once in a while.
A new study found that the key to a successful relationship is putting down your phone and doing two things instead: Spending quality time face-to-face . . . and being affectionate.
The researchers say, quote, “No amount of texting can compensate for a lack of either of those factors.”
But here’s the problem. Most of us are tighter with our phones than our partners.
Another survey just found that 53% of people admit that they spend more time on their phone than with their significant other . . . and two-thirds of us get distracted by our phones in the middle of conversations.
