"It's so simple, it has only one feature…press 'start activity', type your task and press enter. Focusbar will show up on your screen from time to time, reminding you that it's time to work on what you've planned." It integrates with iDoneThis as well. You can send the task you specify over to iDoneThis. #czarrar #productivity #p0rn #discipline #focus #task #management #free #mac #app #store #nag #google #Snippet #action #IDoneThis #pub

"Focus.py helps you keep focused by applying schedulable firewall rules to distracting websites. An example firewall rule looks like this: def domain_reddit_com(dt): return dt.hour == 21 # allow from 9-10pm" "Focus.py is, at its core, a DNS server." #focus #productivity #p0rn #discipline #opensource #DNS #filtering #blocking #pub

"Say you’re just about to start working on something. You sit down, put on your headphones and start writing code. After two hours of intensive work you find out you’ve gotten almost nowhere. You’re wondering why, you didn’t think the task you picked would take that much time, in fact you didn’t think about it at all. So you’ve spent two hours and you feel like you have done nothing. You think, “I might as well check if there are some new creative uses of my favorite meme.” And you end up on Reddit. If you had estimated the task in the first place, you would know it’s a three pointer, so it’s gonna take a while and that’s okay. After finishing it after four hours of intensive focus, you know exactly why it took so long — because it was a three pointer! And you know you’ve accomplished a good deal of work, and you’re happy to keep going. Now let’s talk about another case: There’s some really easy task to do, but suddenly something of highest importance appears in your Facebook news feed (your ex is now in a relationship). Two hours later you find out you could’ve finished your simple task a long time ago, but you didn’t, so you’re really demotivated. If you estimated that task in the first place, it would get a point or two, and you would feel really motivated to deliver it. When the important Facebook item comes up you would think “well my ex being in a relationship is utterly important, but this task is just a one-pointer so I’m gonna finish it first.”...

"So this guy hired a girl to slap him whenever he goes to Facebook in the middle of work. I thought the idea was brilliant. Here's a Mac application that will check Safari and Chrome, and warn you whenever you end up on a timewasting website of your choice. (I tried to make it sound as when you forget about the seatbelt in car.)" #productivity #app #mac #discipline #pub

"Declaring yourself to be operating by "Crocker's Rules" means that other people are allowed to optimize their messages for information, not for being nice to you. Crocker's Rules means that you have accepted full responsibility for the operation of your own mind - if you're offended, it's your fault." "Note that Crocker's Rules does not mean you can insult people; it means that other people don't have to worry about whether they are insulting you." "Crocker's Rules are a discipline, not a privilege. Furthermore, taking advantage of Crocker's Rules does not imply reciprocity." #culture #discipline #personal_development #debate #pub

"#4: My hack to visit Facebook only once a day Only once a day. I changed my password to something long and random, and I made a program that will store it, and only give it to you once a day. Here's how it works: Set your password The program will encrypt it and store to the disk (~/.once) If you ask for the password, it'll copy it to the clipboard (But only once a day!) You log in to Facebook, use it, then log out. Of course there are ways to go around this, but for me, it's just not worth the effort. So this solution works pretty great. Question for you: If you use Mac, would you buy an app to manage this process? It would handle multiple websites, and you could set how many times a day you can use the website... It would be priced at $2.99." "(Clipboard works only on a Mac, but feel free to fork.)" #discipline #moderation #distractions #code #scripts #python #remove_temptations #work_ethics #pub

"Here are some ways to eliminate your Facebook usage throughout the day, and at the end I present my very own hack that seems to be working pretty great for me. #1: Just don't go there Make a decision to stay away from Facebook until late evening, or to only go there once a week. Sounds nice, but it's actually pretty hard. #2: Deactivate your account Wish you could, don't you? I couldn't because there are a lot of people who don't have/don't care about my email address... I guess Facebook is slowly killing e-mail. #3: Only use the messenger app I did this for a couple of months. I changed my password to something random and didn't go to the website. It was nice, but I actually missed Facebook, mostly picture sharing. #4: My hack to visit Facebook only once a day Only once a day.
