Scary Productive

Behavioral training against procrastination on the browser

Scary Productive is a behaviour training extension — it scares the hell out of you to train away visiting procrastinating websites when you shouldn't.

Add a website you want to block in the options and when you try to go to a blocked page you will be redirected to a special video that will make you jump. 😱

A lot of us use our Macs not only for our daily lives, but also for our work. The problem is, with all of the internet at our fingertips, it can be hard to stay focused when the allure of social networking, like Facebook and Twitter, as well as other things you can do to slack off, are no more than just a click away.

There are a chrome plugin, it's called "Go Fucking Work". I use this extension to prevent me access distraction sites like Social Media, Email, and something else. This extension also can "disable a websites to being blocked". I use this to open StackOverflow, Google, CssTricks, Nosily, etc. Btw, thanks for your nice article!

There's a new Chrome extension in town, and unlike other programs that are meant to divert your attention to mindless scrolling and button-mashing, this one emphatically, and pretty crudely, wants you to get shit done.

Chrome: If you need a little help getting off of Facebook or Reddit and getting things done, Go Fucking Work for Chrome has that in droves-and yes, that's its name. No nonsense, no frills, just sharp, pointed advice. Go Fucking Work turns every new tab page into a reminder that, well, you should really get back to work.

Stop me if this sounds familiar: You open a Google doc to write something for work when-ding!-"Laura liked your Facebook status." You click over to your Facebook tab, then click on the alert to read Laura's comment and admire your status once more. "Okay," you tell yourself, "back to work."

Taking notes on your MacBook in class? Better stay focused. Scrambling to finish writing your papers? Better avoid distractions and don’t let other apps and windows in your way. That’s what this app is for.

OS X: HazeOver makes it easy to focus on the task at hand, even if you have multiple windows open on your Mac. All it does is dim background windows and your desktop, and keeps the front, active window bright on top of all of them.

There are lots of ways you can manage windows in OS X. You can use Spaces, or you could use multiple displays, and sort your windows on different virtual or physical desktops. But if you don't use either of these methods, you may find that when you have a lot of windows visible on your display, it can be hard to focus.

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.
