Redeem The Day

How do you stay focused?

There are two Mac apps that I find super useful. One is Fred Stutzman’s Freedom, which irrevocably disables your internet connection for an hour or two. Whenever I need to sit down and write, I fire up Freedom.

The other is Adam Mathes’s DoOneThing, which is a to-do list that only holds one task. It was a revelation when I found it. Now my menubar is always staring me down with the single thing I really want to do — the real thing, the task at hand, the work that, when completed, will redeem the day, make it a victory.

5 Minutes on The Verge: Robin Sloan

Really gets at what I was trying to convey with DoOneThing.
