Deep Work Mode – Simplify your Productivity

August 4, 2017

So you're on your computer and it's time to do some deep, distraction free work.

​One of two things can happen at this point:-

  1. ​You forget to close all your chat programs and you only realise this 10 minutes into your focused work when your mum starts pinging you on Skype. 
  2. You remember that you need to close down the applications that are distracting for you, and you have to cycle through a list of programs one by one to close them down manually.  

So not only do you have to remember to close the apps, but you have to spend 30 seconds of your precious time going through the tedious task of shutting everything down.

You're probably thinking that this is such a small thing, but you'd be surprised how even something as small as this can have an effect on your behavior.

Here's a much better approach:

Two clicks on your mouse and you're done.  

Your computer is now a distraction free work horse ready to serve you.

How This Works

  1. Download my script
  2. Save on your desktop so it's easily found
  3. Double click to run the file when you want to get busy

Is It Safe?

Of course.  It's just a tiny file of commands to end all the most common distracting programs like :-

  • Whatsapp
  • Line
  • Slack
  • Skype​
  • Chrome

Does it Work on Mac?

No sorry, but when I get access to mac I'll make a Mac version
