New Year’s Resolution: Freedom

Feeling distracted after all the festive fun, only to be back at your desk disillusioned and unable to concentrate??

Mac knows the feeling and so they have come up with the perfect New Year’s Resolution: Mac Freedom.

Freedom describes itself as a simple productivity application that locks you away from the internet on Mac or Windows computers for up to eight hours at a time, leaving you free from distractions, allowing you time to have BIG ideas.

At the end of your offline period, Freedom allows you back on the internet. And because you’ll need to reboot if you want to get back online while Freedom’s running, you’re less likely to cheat.

Freedom has proved so valuable a productivity tool that writers such as Dave Eggers, Nick Hornby, Peter Sagal, Peggy Orenstein and Nora Ephron count it as an integral part of their creative process.

This is a great example of a BIG idea that solves a common problem and is in the same vein as John Cleese’s Boundaries of space and boundaries of time theory. You can download Freedom straight away for $10 here and a free trial is also available.
