Our phones have become a central part of our lives. Whether the task is keeping in touch with family, executing on business strategies, or keeping our personal brands up to date, we turn to our phones to get it done.

A study released by Deloitte found that on average, people in the United States across all age groups check their phones 46 times per day.  Additionally, they found most people check their phones immediately upon waking up.

Personally, to say I check my phone a lot would certainly be an understatement.

Somewhere in the middle of having my yearly getting older crisis, a thought hit me. What if I had 46 additional triggers of inspiration or motivational thoughts?

This thought then triggered a flurry of others like, “How could I share this with others?”, “How can I keep things simple yet authentic?”, and most importantly, “How can I get it done with so little time in my schedule?”.

The answer to those questions are below. A series of 28 wallpapers that incorporates my photography, writing and urge to create the good I wish to see in the world.

I hope that you find a favorite or two amongst the wallpapers below. Send me a screenshot so I can see which one you picked out and tell me what it means to you!
