Dealing With Distraction – When Less is More

My computer screen sometimes looks like a three ring circus. I am connected to so many social networks and notification services it is ridiculous! I constantly have notifications popping up on my screen from Facebook or Twitter or LinkedIn, not to mention a steady flow of email. All of these little tidbits of information compete for my attention as I try and work my way through the day.

In fact, all of these distractions severely impact my productivity! Nowhere is that more evident than what I am writing. The ability to focus on a task is severely compromised with all of the distractions that occur on screen.

Stepping into the breach, minimalist word processors. These nifty stripped down word processors completely eliminate all distractions from the screen, allowing us to focus on what’s important, what we are writing at that particular moment.

In this video I shows a few minimalist word processors that eliminate distraction allowing you to concentrate on the task at hand, writing.
