In today’s technology-driven society, individuals are often multitasking with the help of mobile devices, with the objective of increasing productivity by always being “connected.” However, countering this belief is a growing interest in the role of mindfulness, which is defined by Time as being attentive to one’s experiences in the present moment. Adherents of mindfulness believe that one should limit activities (such as the constant checking of messages) that may appear productive but actually are counterproductive. In fact, Google has taken this one step further by promoting one of its lead engineers, Chade-Meng Tan, to the official title of “Jolly Good Fellow (which nobody can deny).” Mr. Tan’s well-paid job is to help Google’s employees be more mindful. Discuss how Google’s decision to have a Jolly Good Fellow title on its payroll might affect consumers of Google’s products despite not directly producing any goods or services?
