Having trouble getting work done? I think this is brilliant:
Different Computers For Different Contexts
Sleep experts recommend that you use your bed only for sleeping. Why not apply the same principle to computers? You’d never pick up your Xbox and think of work. Why would you pick up your Facebook machine and expect to get some programming done? If you have the resources, a second computer just for work can be indispensible.
A Different Profile For Your Computer
Having 2 computers can be expensive and unrealistic for many. Setting up profiles, on the other hand, is free and easy. I recently set up new profile on my laptop using parental controls. In my profile I blocked a bunch of websites as well as certain applications. I can still use my computer for fun stuff but when I log into my new account my computer goes into workstation only mode. I can pretend it has nothing in common with the YouTube player I just closed.
