Let's be honest here, this is the reason for low productivity while working from home 99% of the time.
Tw,Facebook... and don't forget checking your FAV team last news, what the players said, what fans said, what the president said, is that true ?! so come check editions history for old news , 2 hrs later, you find that's not true, so you had to come back to facebook arguing in comments with other angry fans .
The same for politics !
Distractions are everywhere .
that's why i use "leech block" for firefox...
Place a cam behind me and broadcast to YouTube live while working
....like.....everyone in the world is watching you!
Dress like you about to go to work, but stay back and track your productivity each hour. You'll still have days like those though
only have one tab open on your browser at a time and focus on a single task.
You know as crazy as that sounds I think doing something like that would do wonders for my productivity. The added pressure forces you to focus on your work! I think I'm going to try something like this later this week!
people often work harder when they know they're being watched.
Yeah this is certainly the truth. Another thing I did sometimes was I would use a program like camtasia and capture my screen while I'm working. For me that adds a bit of pressure as well.
This is hillarious hahahah, I recommend k9 web protection, stop the temptation
this was discussed in a book called THEONE THING ...
this book is my favorite
Completely agree with you, fewer the tabs lesser the distractions.
I've been working from for the past 6 years. I've had my fair share of struggles. My friends would always tell me how lucky I was to have such a flexible working schedule, but I wish they knew how challenging it was at first.
What worked best for me was the Pomodoro technique. This productivity technique has helped me avoid all the "lost hours" spent on distractions. While many remain skeptics, I suggest it to anyone who struggles with low productivity.
Pomodoro is really a good technique have read about it, but i have not applied it ever. May be never felt the need.
