How I use Spaces feature on Mac to improve my productivity.
If you’re on a Mac, there is a feature called Spaces that let you manage multiple-virtual desktops.

I’m a business owner and web developer, so I created 5 virtual desktops corresponding to my work domains:
It’s the default desktop. It’s the desktop for everything that isn’t classified.
In this desktop, I use the Finder, the browser…
A space to write without distraction.
I just attributed Notes and Marked 2 to this space. But because I use Markdown for almost everything I write, I move a Sublime Text window in this space when I want to write in Markdown, using Marked 2 to preview it.

If you want the template, just give me your email address and subscribe to my newsletter…

This is my personal method to improve my productivity with Spaces. I hope you find this article interesting, and I hope you will try to adapt my methodology for your specifics needs.
