I had a horrible day for focus yesterday. So horrible, in fact, that I ran out of newsblur things to read, and I found myself browsing reddit. And that, now that I’m better rested, is not okay.
So I’m trying out @StayFocusd. It only works in chrome, however, chrome is what I do my personal browsing in; Not as much a “I’m going to limit myself by force” but a “remember, I made an agreement with myself”.
My main distraction points are: facebook, newsblur, and reddit.
On the other side of the coin, I will sometimes use the Pomodoro Technique to try to stay focused. When I do, I use this website as my timer:
Here’s to a focused, productive day!
I should probably stop writing blog articles for today.
