    The internet is a wonderful place. Almost too wonderful. It's easy to lose yourself, and all sense of time, surfing from one page to the next. Like most people you probably start each day by checking your email messages. Afterwards, you likely leave your email application open as you check your affiliate stats and sales. Next, you browse the news sites to see whats going on in the world before you get down to the real work for the day. Right?

    After finding several interesting articles to read you're distracted by headlines leading to other interesting articles on more sites. Then its on to Facebook and Twitter to find out what your friends are up to. Next, you probably check back to see if any new messages have come through. Maybe one email reminds you of an important task you forgot to do yesterday so you immediately get to finishing that.Before you know it, its lunch time and you have almost nothing to show for it. Hours gone and lost forever.
    Sound familiar? Sure it does, we all do it.

    Unless stopped forcefully, this behavior will become habitual and you'll continue to waste time on auto-pilot without even realizing it. This ritual is something that internet marketing legend John Reese calls""the OCD loop".It's all a big time-suck. Every single time you get distracted it costs you money.Stop.Read that again.

    You need to wake up to this fact:more internet surfing = less income

    So how do we kill this beast called the OCD loop?
    The key to avoiding the OCD loop is self awareness; and a plan. Before you finish work each day or night you should write out a simple plan and schedule to follow for the next day. List your daily tasks and rank them in order of importance.
    Complete your three most important tasks the next morning before checking email, news, social media, and everything else. If the tasks are time-consuming then break them down even further into individual steps.

    Set a goal of how long each task or step should take to complete and hold yourself to it. Set an alarm if you need to so you know you're on schedule. Don't allow anything to distract you from your plan. Once you complete the three most important tasks for each day then you can check your email and do all of the other internet business. But schedule a start and end time for that stuff too to make sure you don't fall back into your old bad habits.

    Sometimes we're our own worst enemies. But we're also our own best solutions. Be aware of what you're doing, be honest with yourself, recognize your limitations and weaknesses, and continue to dial in your daily discipline until you're getting stuff done and following your plan every single day.
    That's how wealth is made in affiliate marketing.
