    blasteradu I never give up. Doesn't matter what the score is.

    Today I took the decision to put an Internet filter and block P and also youtube.I think youtube is a great enemy for our productivity, especially mine.There are moments when I have very important task to do, but before I start, I feeling an urge to watch a trailer ,or watch some random video to entertain myself.Has anyone experience this?Also fb is another thing which makes you procrastinate I think, and changes you in social way.Problem is ,having some virtual friends instead of real,flesh made friends is just like P and real girlfriends.

    I might be you.

    I made this deal with myself to only watch 2 youtube vids per day, TOP.

    maybe you could start with something higher.

    Does it work? This strategy of yours does it work? Have you succeed in diminishing your time spent on youtube?

    it has.

    you have to make a habit out of it.

    that and also try just watching videos that teach you something (e.g., c++ programming, learn to play guitar, a new language... stuff like that... but apply it in your daily basis)

    I don't think useful videos are the answer. I have ability to waste huge amounts of time in watchin interesting educational stuff. Time that would badly need spent on work.

    I have gotten pretty good support from a blocker app in chrome. I have set times when I can access firums / facebook etc. basically I get a short time window before lunch to check fun stuff and another later afternoon. At other times those direct me to my calendar.

    I fail a lOt but a very detailed calendar helps too. I put lunch hour in calendar as well as all small stuff that needs to be done. Time spent filling the calendar is time well sPent.

    And don't be an optimist - give realistic time slots for things.
