To get the focussed view in Todoist is so simple:
- Resize the Todoist window horizontally, at a certain point the sidebar disappears and you are left with a window focussed on whatever list or view you have open.
- Make the window wider again and the sidebar returns.
- To access other views or lists click or tap the ‘hamburger‘ or menu button in the top left corner.
“If you write with a pencil, you get three different sights at it to see if the reader is getting what you want him to. First when you read it over; then when it is typed you get another chance to improve it, and again in the proof. Writing it first in pencil gives you one-third more chance to improve it. That is .333, which is a damned good average for a hitter.”
– Ernest Hemingway
I love this brilliant little sketch from my talented daughter, makes me smile every time I look at it.
Wonderfully analogue, surprisingly moving.

I am what is known as a “knowledge worker”. I don’t make or create anything tangible; in the old days I might have been called a “paper pusher”, these days “pixel pusher” is more accurate.
I’m employed for my expertise and experience, and for my leadership and management skills – all rather cerebral and intangible.
Today I am working from home as we are having a smart meter fitted, which means no electricity and therefore no internet connection1.
The removal of power and connectivity suggests that rather than knowledge being power, power is in fact knowledge (work).
Modern (knowledge) working is absolutely dependent upon computers and the internet and therefore electricity.
Electricity is the new steam in the post-Industrial Revolution world of work.
- I may live on the edge of the most modern city in the UK, but we’re still waiting for the mobile networks to install masts within a workable distance. So we have a mobile signal that is sufficiently weak enough to be worse than no signal at all. One of those signals that lulls into thinking you might possibly be able to use it, only to snatch away the connection at the last minute. ↩
