Super article Kyla. I agree, the Internet is the Enemy Number 1 when you are trying to create. I’ve added the Distraction Free YouTube extension which I’m sure will save me the next time I do research on YouTube — so you can start gyrating to Gaga now!!

I used to use StayFocusd (free) which has a briliant ‘nuclear’ option which blocks the whole internet except the sites you have designated. I also have the Facebook Newsfeed Eradicator which has some great quotes but like any motivational poster the effect will wear off over time.

My challenge is to try and catch myself in the very moment of distraction and ask myself What am I doing? to refocus back to my goals not someone else’s.

I’ve written an article about it Distracted? Regain focus with 3 simple questions and included a link to yours.

Now “back to work!” ;-)
