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!
