Breaking The Browser Habit

The browser vexes me.

On my Mac, it’s a portal to whatever the world has to offer. It’s mostly distractions.  Things that don’t benefit me, support my goals or put me in position to be of service.

I use it a lot – because I’m not a luddite: I use the Gmail App.  I compose in Google Docs.

I’m writing this – right now – in WordPress.

Problem is that with those of us that use shortcut keys a world of distractions are just a CMD-T away. (New Tab, Facebook.  New Tab, Sporting News. New Tab, Twitter.)

This is an attack on Deep Work and on Focus

So the goal now is to use the browser sparingly, only for vital things.
