Clamshell Mode

Expanding on my previous post about Stage Manager, I've made a significant change to my setup. I've abandoned the two-display approach, where I used to have a monitor and my MacBook open simultaneously. While I initially thought this setup would save time and aid multitasking, I found that managing all the open apps and windows was too distracting.

Now, I've transitioned to using my MacBook in clamshell mode, connected to the monitor. I rely solely on the monitor display with Stage Manager enabled, ensuring that I'm always focused on just one task at a time with minimal distractions. While this change may have slightly reduced my productivity, it has greatly improved my ability to stay focused.
