Social Media Thursday :: Self Control App

Add subtitle textI have a problem with procrastination. There you go, I’ve said it ! Yes, adults have things that they struggle with too, even though because of our age, we should know better.

I spend a lot of time on the computer. My blog, doing graphic design and compiling ebooks for a lady who writes cookbooks, running social media for the family business, as well as just being on the computer or leisure time  – pinterest, answering emails, facebook, the news etcetera, etcetera and etcetera.

There are some days when I need to be focussed and the procrastination could get in the way of a deadline. This is where my friend Mr Self Control App comes in handy.

It’s a Mac based application (you can find other alternatives here) that I have installed on my desktop (it works on laptops as well) that I can use to BLOCK any access to sites that I think might distract me from the task at hand. Ie I can block pinterest, youtube, facebook, ebay 😉

So, you might be thinking, how can this help me?

If you do have a problem with self-control and just NEED to go pin a few pins, or like a few status updates (or obsessively check your fb account every three minutes) while you should be doing some study or homework – this app is for you.

Once you have plugged in the sites that you want to block , you set a timer for the amount of time that you want it blocked for. Click ok and get some work done! (Go ahead and try to change the setting.. I did and it won’t let you! Once you make the decision and click ok, there is no going back!

Titus 1:8  But hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.

You can go here to get the app.
