I’ve no doubt that I’m one of the most easily distracted people in the world, especially when writing documents on the PC. If I’m not answering IM’s or emails then I’m checking Google Reader or messing with Word formatting or some other vacuous waste of time.
One tool I’ve found that helps massively with this is Darkroom, in fact, I’m blogging this post using it right now. Darkroom is a full screen distraction free notepad type application with a black background and green text. Think old school terminal or command line style and you’re there.
I find I’m amazingly more productive this way, maybe you will be too? Download Darkroom here.
