Simplicity in the Dock

Dom's Dock I'm a "down Dock" kind of person. Also, I tend to keep only the Open apps in there, along with a few shortcuts to Parallels, remote machines, links-du-jour, and my network drive.

Then, I just use Quicksilver to lauch or find anything, or even to drag and drop onto an app.

This reduces visual clutter, and saves me valuable milliseconds when parsing my work environment. There is less to see.

Another habit that I've nutured is: constantly review what's in the Dock. This mostly means removing things. but occasionally I'll add things temporarily.

This practice is easy to remember:

Reduce visual clutter,
Reuse the space in your Dock,
Recycle valuable mental processes as a result.
