So, I am assuming that this time of year is about the same for you as it is for me?! In which case, I have more than enough papers, final projects, and even an exam to study for. And yet, somehow Facebook’s call beckons more strongly than it normally does!
I was on my blog today updating more of my professional pages, and when I logged out, the list of “freshly pressed” blogs came up, and one by a college student called Reflective Happiness popped up about setting goals. “Perfect!” I thought. So, anyway, I perused that for a while, and found out about the most marvelous little tool for Firefox. It’s called LeechBlock and you can enter which websites you want blocked, on what days of the week, at which times, and for how long you are (or are not allowed) access to those sites. Just what I need!
Of course, to test it I needed to play around on Facebook for 15 minutes, and just when I truly was getting distracted, it kicked me out! I love this new gadget and hope that it will help me to write five more pages of this essay…! Try it out if you have focus issues like me!
