这年头 要专心太难了

以前在Twitter上见人推荐过这个软件:OMM writer —— “禅心写作”。很久以前就装了,但一直没有用。最近翻出来开始用它写博客和长邮件,觉得非常舒服。

在这个充斥各种信息和社交工具的世界里,一旦打开电脑,专心就成了一件奢侈的事情。至少我自己的状况是,开着电脑,即使什么事情都不做,浏览器里各个标签页里的信息就会自己蹭蹭的往外跳,且不说Facebook,Weibo或Twitter这种流量比较大的社交服务,就是与获取信息更直接相关的,自己订阅的一些feeds, google reader,Quora或知乎之类,也是每隔十几分钟,就一堆新东西“吵着嚷着”吸引着你的注意力,更不用提随处可见的滚动新闻和广告条了、

Stay connected当然是一件好事,但stay connected with everything本身就是一件不可能的事情,像我这种注意力极其分散,又没什么自律能力的用户,通常情况是,正经邮件写了不到一半,网上瞎逛个半天,然后又过来写blog了…

那既然都要写blog了,就专心点吧。发现用OMM writer,大大的缩短了我的写作时间,于是就离不开了。

现在都所谓,要给用户创造一种体验、界面只是用户体验中很小的一部分,除了看到的排版、颜色和字体之外,更多的是用户在这个产品和平台上做什么,怎样做。

关于“专心”这件事,我所纠结的问题是在于,分散注意力的信息太多了,而OMM Writer所创造的体验核心就是,去除一切与当前任务无关的信息。给你一个“简约而不简单”的界面来平心静气的码字。至少把其他让人分心的信息和程序都cover起来,也算是一种软性强制吧。

但当然,体验不能到此打止,不然这跟我开个word全屏也没差了。很多时候,分神其实是因为在使用产品的过程中,遇到了繁琐,不简便的功能。试想,当你在word里调整一个表格,发现怎么微调都不对劲的时候,是不是常常有take a break的冲动?接着就打开浏览器,告诉自己只分个五分钟神开个网页,随便看看,结果就花了半小时才回来。

如果单纯是写作的话,这本身就是一件重内容轻格式的事情,用Word或是其他文本编辑工具都显得多余,OMM writer以一种极简的方式,只给用户4种字体的选择和3种字号的选择。这样的返璞归真反而让我意识到,选择过多,不过是给人更多犯错误的机会。


当然,对我来说,这个工具最吸引人的地方,也是其体验最独特的一个地方是——伴随写作的音效。

我一直觉得,有助于注意力集中的,并非是一张白纸。就好像在有淡淡背景音乐的咖啡馆里,你反而比在安安静静的家中更能专心的读书或工作。那部分少量的噪音好像活性炭一样把你的“杂念”吸收走了,不然,“杂念“会慢慢发酵,持续的影响你做事的专注度。不信的话,试一下,一边嚼口香糖,一边工作的效率,反而会更高。

OMM writer淡淡的背景音乐正好起到这样的效果。它还提供了与键盘相匹配的”敲击声”。记得以前高中搞竞赛的时候,组里有些同学反倒不喜欢用消音键盘,觉得键盘越破,敲起来声音越大,越有做题的兴奋度和成就感(当然像我这种菜鸟,就是在一旁被这种“强大”的键盘敲击声搞得心神不宁的那一类了 LOL)。

但我想是一样的道理,淡淡的背景音乐,和非常契合的键盘敲击声,自然而然的吸收了你原本就会分散的那部分精力,让你把主要精力自然而然的集中在,屏幕中央,并不大的一块“码字区”。

直到写下最后一个句号,都还有些意犹未尽呢。

      It's made a lot of money for Mort Zuckerman; thanks to him we all learned Duke and USC are academically prestigious, though the law school rankings are the funniest of all. Milk that sucker for all it's worth.p.s. US News claims they rank Reed on publicly available data (the college staff supposedly do not submit the qua)iionnetres. Shouldn't they rank ALL of them on publicly available data? What about crime statistics? Johns Hopkins for instance.
