The computer and the web offer endless distractions.
To avoid them, start working in full-screen mode.
Whenever I use an application on my computer, I use full-screen mode.
If I’m reading an article on the web, my browser takes up the whole screen.
If I’m writing in Notion, I’m working in full-screen mode.
I have set up my desktop so that the menu bar disappears automatically.
When I am working, I can’t see the time, the icons of other applications, or any other distractions on the screen.
It’s funny how big of a difference this makes for my focus and concentration.
If you can see an icon on your screen, then you will be reminded to click on it occasionally. However, if you remove the visual cue, then the urge to be distracted subsides in a few minutes.
