Productively is usually about productivity. RescueTime has helped me figure out where I'm wasting my time and try to cut those out as opposed to finding some silver lining in a todo list app.

It is hard to know if you are being unproductive without the data! RescueTime is super easy to use and really helpful for understanding how you spend your time.

I use this implicitly a lot. It's usefulness has multiplied since it became an integration for Gyroscope (which is another recommendation in this list).

Chrome Extension that protects your privacy by blocking FB

Block Facebook is a Chrome Extension that helps you protect your privacy by blocking all URLs associated with Facebook (including Facebook tracking pixels).

The recent Cambridge Analytica controversy adds to the long list of instances where Facebook has misused user data so it's time we do something about it.

Plus, blocking FB is also good for productivity 😛

This is hands-down my favorite — it blocks distracting websites and apps on your laptop, and gets out of your way otherwise. Like Self-Control, but with an even-nicer UI!

I use this one. Does good enough job blocking access to apps and websites I don't want to spend time on when working. Also has a "hardcore mode" where you literally can't turn off work mode during certain times. It's awesome.

In October, Facebook began testing a News Feed minus the news. The test, which moved all shared articles to a separate feed called Explore, was designed to make it easier to see posts shared by friends and family. That test is still ongoing - but in the meantime, developer Ryan Orbuch is taking the experiment a step further.
