I’m buying a Kindle…again. I had one before and sold it because I wasn’t using it enough. Here’s the problem. I read less now that I have an iPad and I know why. Distraction. Choice is not a blessing to me lately. Multi-tasking is ruining my productivity. I write my blog posts using Omm Writer – It’s a program for the distracted (and for Mac only). It’s like those really lame Kindles that only do ONE thing well.
Guess what, doing ONE thing is more than doing two things poorly. The world is full of multi-use tools (like computers) that break all too often. When’s the last time you broke a hammer? It does one thing really, really well (pounds nails). Yes you can use it to remove nails too but 99% of the time you use it for one thing.
Find tools that allow you to do one thing and do it well. I love my iPad but when I want to be productive I want less. Don’t do less things. Use tools that do less so you can do more. Good news, Omm Writer is free and the paid version is well…just check it out. You’ll be pleasantly surprised. Go. Do something.
