Quitting phone calls

I'm Quitting Phone Calls, article.

... For business at least.
I wrote a similar post a while ago. I just found that every time I let myself be talked into taking a phone call, it lasted over an hour, and didn't convey more data than I could have absorbed in 3 minutes from an email.

A better idea is to quit business itself. That's what I did. The word alone tells you it's not good for you: busy-ness. Being busy is not very zen-like, is it?

Phone calls are great, provided they are carried over a cable, not microwaves. There's no need to speak much to the phone, it's enough if both parties just listen.

So what do you do for a livelihood?

I operate as a person. Not as a fictitious entity. All phone calls are personal.

Finland is probably like Denmark, so he's saying he's a state supported bum.
