Tips & Tricks Tuesday: Combine LeechBlock and Remember The Milk to avoid distractions and get more done
Tuesday, November 9, 2010 by Andrew Conkling
If you're easily distracted and could use a little motivation to keep your eye on your list of tasks, then this week's tip, shared by patch, may help!
There is a nice add-on for Firefox called LeechBlock. You can use it to block websites either during time intervals (let's say, from 10 am to 4 pm) or after spending too much time on the website (let's say 20 minutes on your favorite online chess website). You can also decide where the tool will direct you instead when you try to access a website during forbidden times. Now I have chosen, for example, that LeechBlock will not allow me to go to Twitter during work times – instead it will redirect me to Remember The Milk, reminding me to get things done instead of procrastinating.
