You sit and swear to yourself, that you’ll be productive,when you start your PC but after twelve hectic hours, you realize that you’ve checked your mail, updated your Facebook status, browsed the trending topics on Twitter, read your RSS feeds, looked up your favorite band on Wikipedia, vanity Googled yourself, cyber-stalked your ex, looked at all your high-school crushes’ Facebook photos, watered your plants on Farmville, and lost a week’s pay playing online poker.
What you haven’t done is WORK!
Now here is the cure for this disease,which I came up with, but you have to start using Google Chrome for this. StayFocusd is a productivity extension for Google Chrome that helps you to stay focused, on work by restricting the amount of time you can spend on time-wasting websites. Once your allotted time has been used up, the sites you have blocked will be inaccessible for the rest of the day.
It is highly configurable, allowing you to block or allow entire sites, specific subdomains, specific paths, specific pages, even specific in-page content (videos, games, images, forms, etc).
I have started using this few days ago and now I feel myself more productive. I limited my Facebook usage to 2 hours a day, previously it was more than 8 hours a day, and I am getting good results. A must-try extension for Facebook and Online gaming addicts!
