Ways to counter your addiction (5)

You can't just turn off the computer, but there are ways you can get more work done and spend less time fooling around.

  • Use http://www.taskpad.jp/ to FORCE yourself to get work done. (The only problem with this system is your own willpower.)
  • There's a tool out there that locks up your computer every ten minutes and makes you justify what you're doing. But that just seems obnoxious to me, I don't use it. You could make yourself record what you're doing on a notepad if you want to experiment with that. If you can do it, it will help.
  • Write a to-do list of what you're going to do on the computer today.
  • Admit that nobody reads your webcomic and/or blog, and you don't have much to say anyway.
  • Evaluate how you spend your time. Which of your favorite blogs actually offer interesting news, and which are just neta? Have you actually contributed or learned anything significant on that registration-based forum? (I've discovered that 4-ch is different because you don't have to give a shit about making yourself known for intelligent posts.) Try multiplying the number of posts you've made by 5 minutes...hmm.. .maybe you should take up Sudoku instead.
  • If you're staying up obscenely late and can't sleep, I have found that fapping helps.

I do this often, but sometimes have trouble with willpower. Today I did okay, working on a website I am making, but, I will try out taskpad. Thanks!
