Check It... or Maybe Not.
While working on a major project (say, the new edition of Self-Management for Actors and its accompanying app), I limit myself to one check of email and social networking sites or apps per hour (longer stretches at times). What would count as an "e-diet" for you? Clock it. Set a timer and see how long you go between e-checks of any kind. Let Rescue Time help you sort it out. Then police yourself. You'll be amazed how much more productive you can be!
