freedom : one way to focus
The internet, email, Facebook, it's all so distracting, even if essential. I'm in an intensely busy period and I need to be as focused and efficient as possible. So I paid $10 to buy Freedom yesterday.
This software lets you cut off your connectivity for set periods of time. You have to reboot if you want to reconnect before your time is up, hopefully enough of a barrier that you stick with your original goal.
So much of my work is done offline, on paper, so I'm hoping this helps to structure my time and concentrate on the task at hand!
