how to actually get some work done

Social media tools getting in the way of your productivity? Too many tweets, blog posts, Facebook updates and FriendFeeds? Not to worry - Mac users. Freedom is here.

Freedom is a tool (Mac only, for now) that disables your network for a time period that you assign. So you can't check Twitter or Facebook. No matter how much your brain says you need to. The only way to get your social fix back is to restart your computer - which should be enough of a deterrent to make you I really need to tweet? Now?

(It's like having a militant IT staff that you control!)

From Tim Ferriss, the President of productivity, via Twitter.
