I was reading Andrew Hunt’s Pragmatic Thinking & Learning and was interested in the section, Maintain Task Focus. Here he talked about using a Virtual Desk Top so multiple workspaces on a computer can be set up. In essnence each virtual desktop only has a specific set of applications, and switching to a different desktop would reveal a diffrent set of applications.
Virtual Desk Top List
With OSX its very easy to set up using Virtual Desk Tops using Spaces.
I’ve followed the list as propsed by Andrew Hunt with a few modifications:
- Evernote – the OSX Application rather than the Web Page
- MarsEdit 3 – my favourite blogging tool
- Xcode- wasn’t able to add this application in the System Preferences for Spaces
- iPhone Simulator
I’ve found following the above a great boom to my effieciency, being able to focus on the task in hand.
