Tools, Old and New
An occasional review of tools I can’t live without.
Magnet is a window organization gadget for Mac.  It’s exactly how window management on the Mac should work.  And it’s $0.99.  Just get it.
The iPad/Pencil combination Just Works - I no longer use paper for anything, and don’t miss it for a second (and I love scribbling).  I use it with GoodNotes, which is dead simple, fun to use, and super functional.  Combined with bits of magic - like, it can search my handwriting.  How the hell does it do that?
Still using sanebox.  No idea how anybody uses gmail without it.
Still using Bear instead of Evernote.  Much faster, simpler, does everything I want.
When I want to shut off distractions and focus, I use Self Control on the Mac.  It shuts down a list of sites for a specific time.  You can still do research, but can’t get to your favorite distraction sites. Set it for two hours, wait to get over the irritation at twenty minutes when you can’t open Facebook, do your work.
