Web-surfing is a major part of my procrastination. I feel like for me it's not something that I can manage in moderation, and am wondering if maybe giving up *all* non-work-related surfing would be easier for me.
So, I figure I'll try it out. A 30-day trial seems too hard, so I'm going to try a week to start.
The goal is to use:
*This site (as much as I want)
*Google scholar, pubmed, library website (as much as I want)
*Other websites for work-related purposes (wikipedia, tech-advice forums, etc.) but logging my use of these and avoiding personal use
*Personal email, facebook messages, etc. but only at set times (I'll give myself an hour at the beginning of the day and an hour at the end)
*Planning for non-work events (bible studies, reservations, travel plans) OK outside of working hours
*NO webcomics, comedy sites, news blogs, productivity blogs, online devotionals, self-help forums, online newspapers, youtube, sites for complaining about work or grad school, quizzes, stupid comment threads, etc.
And plenty of off-line relaxion to replace these.
I'll report back at the end of every day this week.
