I never used to switch off the mobile phones to get focus in the meetings. So all the time I am facing the issue because of that. I felt it is a good idea to switch off the mobile phone while we are in meetings. It can make us free from the interruptions made by it.
I very rarely do that
Yes, I frequently switch off my phone when I doing some important work. With phone you can't focus anything so switch off this and relax.
Fortunately! Because I need to learning english more fast
Of course because Phone make me can't concentrate with anything
I always swithc off my mobile to be more attentive to my work avoiding distractions
it's funny I'm 19 years old and I still don't have a phone I only have a PC
Are you serious? hahaha it's really funny
Yes because it minimize distruction from recieving notifications and help me focus in my studies.
I would like everyone to switch off mobil phone at meeting. It’s good attitude and having higher concentration to the speaker.
