So, tomorrow I'm going Cold Turkey.
No, not quitting smoking (although that is soon). Not giving up coffee (do I look crazy to you?). Not giving up sweets (although I am, but that's not really a big deal to me).
I'm talking about Cold Turkey - the Internet blocker.
I'll be the first one that I have a bit of a problem with focus. I can bounce around between a dozen tabs all day long and get almost nothing done. Even when I'm trying to actually work, I'll still bouncing around. And that's just not good for productivity. Anyone that actually makes decent money will tell you that you have to have some self-control when it comes to things like Facebook and Twitter and other sites. Either that or you need something to control your Internet time for you.
That's where Cold Turkey comes in.
You decide which sites you need to stay off of and when you need to block them so you can work. You set it up, turn it on, and you get focused.
Tomorrow I'm going Cold Turkey. I'm scared. I really am! But now that there is no reason for me to have to go to Facebook all the time (it's not part of my job) there's no excuses.
Have you tried anything like this to force yourself to be more productive?
