The saying goes that a man becomes what he thinks. But what if his mind is scattered?
Living a life on purpose and having intentional focus is obviously key to success. But friends, let’s face the hard facts. We all get distracted.
While I’ve never forgotten my kids in the car while going shopping, I’ve had my fair share of diverted focus. Let’s just say I’ve taken the 30 minute drive to work, just to realize that I forgot the computer at home. And not just once.
In fact my experiences on the topic could probably fill a small book. But rather than sharing war stories, I today want to talk about a pretty awesome writing tool. One that helps you get less distracted. It’s called Omm Writer.
The reason you probably need Omm Writer is that computers are spectacular multifunctional machines. You can use them for Facebook, email, watching YouTube, listening to music and … oh yeah, writing of course. In other terms they are full of powerful distractions.
The basic functionality of Omm Writer is therefore very straightforward. It fills the entire screen in order to block out all the normal distractions on the screen. If you’re using your computer in dual monitor setup mode the software also neatly blacks out your second display.
On top of that it provides a very pleasing environment. The interface is incredibly clean and if you want a real Zen experience you can let it play soft background music as well. Check out the video below the experience it first hand.
Omm Writer let’s you decide how much you want to pay for it, but their minimum recommended price is $4.11.
To be clear this isn’t a tool designed to replace your traditional word processor. It’s simply a tool to get your thoughts down on “paper”. If you’re still determined that you must to be able to format your text while writing, this tool isn’t for you.
But if you want to create a calm environment where you can just write, Omm Writer might be your tool of choice.
