Wow. I had no idea that social media is such a drain on my work. The amount of work I’ve been able to accomplish since blocking a few particular sites has been stunning. Twitter, in particular, has been the big drain, or rather gain in blocking it. I was so used to just opening a browser window and typing “twi [tab][enter]” that I’ve got something like nine hits on my Chrome blocking app for it already.
Speaking of which, I do recommend this app: Block Site. It’s been great. Easy to set up and effective.
The main reason for doing this, I’m sure, is that recently while counseling someone to have more discipline in their life, I became convicted that I lack discipline in my life, too. Changes were needed. So far, this has been one of the most fruitful ones.
