    I uninistalled some games too, cyvilization was the most time consuming
    also i try to organize mytime better, plan what to do today.
    The worst thing is to be in "time wasting loop":
    check email->check news in net->watch movie on youtube->check email...

    it's very easy to become unproductive

    I unsubscribed from some guru email lists....probably should have some time ago, but the "you might miss something" mentality kept creeping back, not today, all gone.

    I made a new site on blogger after recieving £280 from being a bingo affiliate. The reason I made a new blogger site? cause I took my squidoo lens down last year that was promoting online bingo sites.

    I did absolutely nothing to increase my productivity today. I let my automated AB testing/reporter do that for me ;) This gives me more time to troll the forums for ridiculous posts and reply to them on BHW.

    One of the best ways to increase your productivity in any automated arena is to lower the burden on your PC by removing unwanted software. And as for the human factor, I disagree that doing this is a proof of not being motivated. On the contrary, making posts such as this is more proof of distraction than is doing routine PC maintenance I myself, am very unmotivated today. I am facing a rather tough AKA boring schedule of email server setups to do later in the day. Looking forward to this has me enjoying doing jack shit, and now I find myself procrastinating (though I am really ahead of schedule and taking a mini vacation) by writing to you (CASE IN POINT BY ADMISSION).

    AS for thinking that removing things that distract you from doing your work is ONLY DOING WHAT PLEASES ME, then you surely are one of the rare people who have never enjoyed a PC game, full length movie torrent downloads, or itunes libraries. You do not know the pain of having to remove a TB of your favorite concerts because you need room for a zen install for your new reseller hosting. (I had to steal the living room media PC for this one).

    I bet that some of us have had your PC is full of stuff that you have downloaded from forums like DP and more mediafire link downloads than the FBI could ever sift through, and for what, 60 copies of "do something" 100 videos on "buy something", and tons of software to help you supposedly "sell something". Maybe some of us need to remove some clutter.

    As for all of those distracted by porn, there is not much help there. You can't get much IM done w/o a browser. If you are an addict, you can try text browsers (PM me if you need some good asci porn though, I used to kill it chatting in muds).

    As for being euphoric about my goals, I am estatic, and I think most of us are. Distraction is a reality for anyone in this biz, and info overload usually exacerbates this. To think that a person is ineffective (and from your post, it is assumed that you ARE not in this position) because they just "dont want it enough" is a pretty sad statement. You seem to be a little egocentric. You need to have an avatar like mine and a few more posts to deserve to feel that way. ;) seriously, Just look through the keyhole. There's a gigolo on the other side. How's that make you feel from your sour prospective. How much fun You Seem To Be Havin at work!

    To be honest, you may have done a lot more in IM than myself, but please, if you are going to leave troll posts here, then at least try to make them entertaining, and troll a troll, instead of criticizing others for ACTION they have taken. There are some hear that are very serious about making money online, and do very well. You will see them sharing, asking intelligent questions, and making others here feel welcome, as collaboration and outsourcing are keys to what they do.

    There are others, like me, that are not making $20k month yet, enjoy using IM as a means of income or entertainment, and do not mind breaking a few rules to do it, usually the TOS of the websites we visit. We share when we can, we work and/or play hard, maybe talk a little shit now and then, but understand that it is COMMUNITY that allows this to happen.

    Then there are obnoxious little pricks, that make 50 posts, think they are GOD, put other members down.

    If you are just out of Prozac and that is why you termed your post with such overt hostility, I will understand. If you are truly that big of a prick, and want to carry that into the community here at BHW as a sign of how SMART YOU ARE, I for one object.

    There is a place for crudeness, the harsh truth, and the knowledgeable to criticize those less than.

    But you either started off bad (53 posts when you wrote this or less) or it is YOU friend who are a pussy.. as you seem to have a lot of hostility to a community you just joined. Is this truly your first account here? maybe not.

    Maybe by posting this it will deter others from simply putting down others here at BHW, making it much better for myself and others on a daily basis.


    Peace and love to all, this stuff just pisses me off, sorry for the rant, but I have always advocated against new newbie restrictions, as no matter how long I am here, I remember what starting here was like, and see no problem with the way it was and is.

    But you my friend, either need to find a new forum or start showing some respect.

    No pussies here. Welcome to BHW. I'm no Mod, and this post will probably be removed. Before it does I hope You Read it (OP).

    I hope you take it as constructive criticism and stick around.

    As for people here on BHW being pussies. That is also just an "I need my Oxycontin" statement.

    But, if you gotta beef about it..

    You can PM me for my home address. :AR15firin

    OK, I have blasted on you enough.


    Truth is, doing what I can to clear up how I feel about some of the bullshit posts that have been cropping up here is what I have done to help my productivity today.

    Now I can watch some more HBO
