Time management
This post itself is antithetical to its purpose, but oh well. I waste way too much time during the day (a dig at myself there and a heads-up that I will have to spend less time here) on various sites. Just plain fucking-off. I have downloaded a chrome extension called StayFocused that blocks sites after you have been on them for some allotted amount of time and downloaded a white noise app for my cell phone to block out background noise. I also downloaded an app to my pc called ResuceTime that monitors how much time you spend on various sites or programs, so you can track where you are wasting too much time.

So, here is my question. Does anyone else have any helpful hints, apps, or programs for improving productivity, curbing distractions, and increasing general focus?

RE: Time management
eat somewhat healthy (not too much though) and just get angry at wasting time. Also, get something more important/interesting to do than what you have to do, that way you'll procrastinate the important thing with what you have to do.

The problem is that most everything I have to do is interesting (I have some stuff to move but that's about it for the uninteresting stuff, and I'll have some grading to do once classes start back).

I downloaded a document creator called OmmWriter that blocks out all other applications while it is up and plays soothing music in the background. It's nice.

Seriously, I really use my Outlook calendar a lot but I focus pretty well when I have something to do.

I know it's a big difference, that's why I pointed it out.
