I found an amazing way to increase productivity by a large amount with one simple command! Simply run this command:
sudo bash -c "echo -e \"### Sorry guys, I'll return when I have less deadlines\n127.0.0.1 reddit.com\n127.0.0.1 www.reddit.com\n127.0.0.1 slashdot.org\" >> /etc/hosts"
I’m not quite sure what it is about this, but I immediately noticed work was getting done much sooner!
A note for those not familiar with hosts and other sarcasm-deficient folks: This command makes the computer use localhost for the IP address of Reddit and slashdot, preventing you from accessing those sites. In a pinch, this command can help people like me that suffer from a lack of self-control when it comes to online distractions… I’ll return some day…
