The occasion makes man distracted

Today I saw that one of my favorite tools, Trello, created the Desktop version; the slogan of this choice is “Eliminate Distractions”. In fact, web tools have increased the usability of the tools (just use a web browser) but if we are honest we must admit that the browser is a source of distractions; is it really so easy to check mail every time we open that “blessed” window? Is it easy to resist the temptation to read that news? By paraphrasing an old proverb: “The occasion makes the thief man” (and considering that wasting time is a theft to ourselves) we could say that “The occasion makes man distracted.” The return to desktop applications could help (even grandma’s methods are sometimes the most effective)
