Those of you who know me may have noticed that I’m not the biggest fan of iPhones.

I have nothing against them really, but I’ve just noticed that, over the years, 95%+ of people who’ve approached me with something not working on their phone, have an iPhone.

Usually when said iPhone has to interact with a none Apple product.

Apple have purposely always made it so, if you have all Apple products, you’re good – just see the Steve Jobs film.

Trying to get them to interact with none Apple stuff has mixed results.

I’m sure they’re great really, but I’ve never had any problems with my Android phones and the high number of people I’ve encountered with these problems with their iPhones has never made me feel that making the switch would be a great idea.

But, actually, that’s not what this blog is about.

It’s about one of the reasons many iPhone users give for having an iPhone.

That it’s the most popular individual phone make (in the UK anyway).

Which, to me, is completely irrelevant.

They might as well say they’ve chosen an iPhone because the third letter of their name is a T or because they like wearing hats.

That’s fine, but it would have zero impact on my decision.

EastEnders is the most popular TV programme, vanilla the most popular ice cream flavour and fishing the most popular past time……..

But that won’t affect my decision on whether I’d be interested in any of them.

If anything, if life has taught me one thing, it’s that going with the crowd probably takes you in the wrong direction.

Most people are living lives that gradually make them sicker and less happy with their bodies, energy levels, mood and lives in general over time.

That’s entirely their call, of course.

But the fact that “most people” are doing those things only needs to influence our decision if we choose it to.

Mark Twain famously said “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect”.

Ultimately, we can all do what we like.

Have iPhones, watch EastEnders, eat vanilla ice cream, fish, get through the week so we can sedate at the weekend, blunt how we feel with food and alcohol rather than doing something to change it and so on.

But it’s worth questioning………

Why we do things to fit in with people……..

Who live lives with have no interest in replicating!
