Geek of the Week: ColdTurkey

This Windows application blocks a computer from social media, addicting websites, games and even programs. It is a perfect solution for businesses and schools worried that their company computers are being used for non work/school related activity.

You can also schedule the blocking. Maybe open it up during lunch hour or after school?

An administration password is required to configure and disable the program, so users can't shut it down, even from the task manager.  


Cost: $10 (½ of that is donated to charity).

Grace's MOTIVATION Monday

Enjoy this very moment...

You don’t need ideal conditions in order to enjoy an ideal life. You can simply make the choice to do so.

You don’t have to wait until the perfect moment to be happy. Any moment and every moment will do, including this one.

Whatever you’re doing, add a smile and a positive attitude to it. Life’s beauty is everywhere, so make the empowering choice to see it everywhere.

You can choose to complain about your lot in life and to feel sorry for yourself, or you can choose to enjoy the wonder that’s all around you. Keep in mind that there’s valuable opportunity in everything, and a positive perspective enables you to tap into that opportunity.

Geek of the Week: The Package

A puzzle game that, like a Rube Goldberg Machine, requires the user to employ a series of conveyor belts, ramps, fans, and springed boxing gloves to move a box through increasingly difficult and dangerous mailrooms.  Very reminiscent of the old video game The Incredible Machine.

Grace's MOTIVATION Monday

Start doing it ....

The way out of doubt is to do. The way to get beyond discouragement is with action.

Thoughts have a powerful influence on the way you feel and the way you are. Yet deeds have an even more powerful influence.

When you’re doing something positive, effective and meaningful, it’s difficult to be negative. When you’re actively making a difference in life, there’s no energy left for discouragement or despair.

When you want to get your spirits up, get yourself up and get going. Your actions can change life for the better, and that will most certainly change you for the better.

Think of how truly amazing it is that you can make things happen. Then go beyond thinking, and start doing it.

Don’t just wish or dream or complain or worry. Step decisively away from the negative, limiting thoughts with positive, purposeful action.......
