Good Habit: Take control of your online time!

Finally! Something brilliant to share.  Watch brief video about two applications that you can use today to tame your online excesses:  Mac Freedom and Rescue Time. Whether you're Mac or PC, you can give yourself an online time-out or set up analytics that make it impossible to ignore where you really spend your time.

If you're burning through your online time budget, cut it out.  No excuses.  On the other hand, if you've gone cold-turkey, been internet-paranoid, as I have, there's no reason to be afraid to go back in the water.   (whether you want to is an entirely different conversation!)

Note: the Successfully Solo time management class is being revamped. It had gotten fat and a bit sloppy.  New one rolls in March.  These tools are going to make for a good discussion.   If you have other tips and tools, do share!
