It’s been a while coming. I’ve turned off all push and Growl notifications, only check email 2-3 times a day, schedule time to disconnect, and mostly maintain inbox zero. But there are still things, big personal project things, that I need to ship. Stuff I decided to do months and, in one case, over a year ago. While the steps I’ve taken have helped, Twitter, Facebook, Drudge and the all the links I click therein are still my biggest distractions. I need a detox to reclaim my focus.

So February is officially cordoned off to build my self-control, find my focus, and ship. See you in March.
