The internet is single-handedly the biggest productivity tool and the biggest procrastination tool, all wrapped into one.
Can you see an immediate problem here?
The point is to be clear with yourself: decide at which times of day you want access to a fantastic wealth of information – and decide the times in the day that you want to avoid the temptation to get caught in a ‘YouTube loop’ or waste valuable attention marvelling at Facebook statuses, celebrity gossip or BBC website articles.
Learn that the internet is your best friend as well as your worst enemy, and at times it needs to be as far away from your impulsive grasp as possible.
(and when you DO allow yourself some time online) you can find Think Productive UK on FACEBOOK and TWITTER!
