You may find one of the most effective ways to use technology to further your productivity is to circumscribe your own access to it. Consider deleting some apps as a means of eliminating your temptation to waste time. If you discover that you spend too much time on a given site or sites, simply block with Leechblock for Firefox, StayFocusd for Chrome, and WasteNoTime for Safari.
Consider deleting apps like facebook that you spend a great deal of time using on all but one of your devices, which you only use during times of planned non-productivity.
