While getting a few things done this holiday season I paid special attention to what was keeping me from staying focused, on-task. To kick this year off right, I’ve made some dramatic changes to my OS X desktop.
From the menu bar, I’ve removed applications that change just enough to distract me. Including:
- clock (replaced with the World Clock widget)
- battery status (replaced with Menial’s BatteryInfo widget)
- Wireless network status (replaced with MacWireless’ AirPort Radar widget)
- Instant messaging list (replaced with Menial’s AdiumList Widget)
In addition, I’ve removed all the applications from my dock and ‘turned automatic hiding on’.
All of these small changes make the PowerBook a quieter place to work.
