Are you having trouble focusing on your work? Are you attracted to the social networking sites due to which you waste most of the time? To help you make the most of your time, check out Blockr for Google Chrome. It keeps you on your toes, and makes you work, because until and unless you don’t complete your work it will block your internet access. It is pretty simple to use you and will be greeted with a screen where you will have to define your goals.
The very first thing is that you will need to create a new account on Blockr.me which will just take a minute. You can add an inspirational quote that will keep you going even in the toughest of times, and then you can give yourself a kind of a reward by writing in the number of hours of internet you get with each completed goal. Then just add in the number of words or codes after which you will be granted internet access.
Now, save it and it will ask you to add the extension to your Google Chrome, after that you will be taken to a screen where you write, and you can write anything and underneath will be a goal for you and all you have to do is complete that goal and you will have internet access again. It actually gets quite competitive and you start taking it as a game. It’s a great way to make you work and somehow it actually works!
Once you set your goal of writing or coding you can start writing using Blockr.me’s clean and distraction free interface. Once you finish writing you can simply hit submit writing, if it meets your writing goal you will be granted with streak, i.e access to internet.
However, I had some trouble with making the extension work as I was still able to access my internet while completing a goal, that’s something the developers will have to work on, but it do work most of the time.
Other than that, it’s a great way to make people complete their work on time without wasting precious hours on the internet and it actually makes work a bit interesting, because when you strive to get something you actually do a good job.
