    Holy crap I mean...

    BHW is fantastic. period.

    However I´m seriously thinking about restricting my own access to it for a while.

    I thought about setting bhw url in hosts file to a php server on my computer with a huge red html text page with GET BACK TO WORK on it.

    I heard there are a few softwares that can regulate when certain activities can be performed on a pc, such as restricting sites in determined hours of the day.

    BHW is so addictive and resourceful, you end up not doing your work.

    Like cigarretes on 9-5/college. You just go for it every 5 min you get.

    And I feel I could improve a lot on scheduling myself to cake-allowed times of the day.

    Anyone else?

    Is this any normal am I freaking out :biglaugh:

    Bro, keep it simple :)

    BHW is great I know, but sometimes it's bad to know that there are all sorts of software to do all kind of stuffs.

    For example: blocking your own access to BHW :p

    Here is a solution.


    Hardware needed:

    - A pen
    - Paper


    Write down a MUST-DO list (NOT a To-do). These are the 5 - 7 most important things you NEED/HAVE TO/MUST do no matter what (the things that will be productive and build your business).

    Wake up, have something to eat, brush your teeth & have a shower.

    Next, take that list and follow it to the T. Don't do anything else until you've completed everything's that on the list.

    When you're done, go on BHW :) . Set a timer for 30mins - 1hr.

    Then do family stuff.

    Just before going to bed, write down your MUST-DO list for next day.


    REPEAT :)

    This is what i do. just write in blackhatworld.com and read through the list of threads and see if there are anything interesting or not. if i find some i go through it. if not back to something important.

    This doesn't take much. ;)

    and don't bother going through bogus threads. it just wastes time.

    In your mind.
    maybe you post too much, lower your posting average and maybe you will check in more and post less.

    I've got quite a few "time suck" sites on my hosts file. Great way to keep productivity up

    that and i also keep my senuke / scrapebox / tweet attacks type activity on separate boxes in another room - that way there's nothing flashing / going on on a screen right in front of me and I can focus
