time doctorLast week I published an article on how to “up” your productivity as a blogger, and since I once promised to be sharing tools and resources I find interesting every once in a while I find it difficult to keep my new discovery to myself.

I recent discovered Time Doctor after someone recommended it in a comment on a productivity post on my blog. I installed it on my computer and the experience has been great so far.

Time Doctor is an application that helps you keep track of how much time you spend on each project, how much time you waste on unimportant tasks and it also helps keep you on line. I was surprised at how much time I waste in front of the computer every day after installing Time Doctor for the first time. I was surprised to see myself wasting as much as 3-4 hours a day doing unimportant tasks even when I’ve made up my mind to start working on a particular project.

Time Doctor also has a particular feature in which it automatically detects your activities on top social media sites when working. In other words, if you happen to visit Facebook or Twitter when you said you are writing a blog post Time Doctor will pop up and ask you if that’s what you’re really doing.

Unlike other productivity software, Time Doctor doesn’t control your activities or what you do; it operates mostly based on input from you and when it notices you’re doing something else or not in front of the computer for a while it automatically enters break mode.

I just installed the software a few days ago and I’m yet to master it but I think it is important that I share it right away.
