    I know there is a lot of us in the same boat here lol

    I have been an active member on many forums but none as addictive as this one.

    I am always getting so SIDETRACKED here. It always starts the same I just check up on a few things then BANG before you know it I have been on here for hours, not got anything done for the day and the gf wants to KILL me.

    What tips do ppl have? or are we all just DOOMED to being too hooked to this forum lol.

    ;):confused::)

    i have a to do list for the week planned every sunday, and a to do list each day as well. besides the usual time schedule of what to do, i also list out the six most important things that i must get done for the day. it helps keep me on track, trust me writing it down would cause you to commit to your plans at a certain level

    Focus on the goal that you'll get if you stick to the plan, pick a good method and stick with it. BHW forum is very addictive, but you won't make money without action. Try to get a motivation wallpaper for your desktop. It can help a bit.

    I find that a to-do list works very nicely.

    One of the best things I found is using a timer and working for hour long periods then a break. This really does work.

    Prob is for a while I did full time college plus 2 x part time jobs plus gf = mindf%^k I am sure I have ADD :(

    Feels tricky to concentrate on the prob is I need to constantly come back here periodically for knowledge then next thing you know you have been here for hours :(

    Another thing I am hoping will work is I am starting to invest money in software and equipment to motivate me as I will be p1ssed with myself if I dont use ;)

    I will prob buy market samurai and mash together a linkwheel based method (with twists) and will try to run every day for one month as there is a method I have wanted to try for a long time. I was thinking I might start a thread and post each day. People can also tell me to f6&king get on with it if I appear to be spending too much time here lol.

    :)

    It's not only about who wants to kill you, it is also about getting things done. I generally do not pressure time too much and take it easy. But at the end I realize that I am left with zero achievement. It's a thin margin line where you get to decide when you will start your working, but truth to be told, instead of deciding it start doing it.

    In your mind.
    Whatever you do, don't write diaries, this usually means you rather write down what you want to do than actually doing it, because it looks sooooo cute and pretty on paper.

    Don't confuse taking notes (which is good) with writing diaries.
