ADHD tools: focus booster

I downloaded this on my work PC this afternoon, and it was really pretty helpful. I’ve gotten to the point where I tune out outlook reminders, and even reminders from mycell phone  palm pilot pocket pc blackberry. I was really surprised by how much I got done in the 25 minutes I used it… not allowing myself to be distracted by new incoming mail or other tasks and just focusing on this ONE folder in my mailbox… although I couldn’t exactly ignore the Office Communicator message that came in from a colleague in another department… 🙂 I downloaded it on my laptop at home in hopes of managing my blogging time better (I get lost on google when I do research & fact checking)… it takes me WAY too long to compose!!!
