It’s easy to get distracted on the internet.
One of the best ways I’ve found to maintain a habit of productive browsing is to:
- Step 1: Bookmark all high-output websites that move you forward (whatever this means for you)
- Step 2: Develop a habit of browsing through the bookmarks
I have bookmarked my project management tool, my customer websites, my own academy and agency website, my content management tool, and direct links to the specific pages that get me to work on high-output activity.
For example, “Add a new post” link on WordPress for this blog is in my bookmarks so I know I can just click on it and start writing a new post, something I consider as higher output than browsing social media newsfeeds.
Based on what you consider high-output for your work or life progress, bookmark those so they show up all the time.
You can use just icons for bookmarks on Chrome without any text to make them look minimalist and also have more bookmarks in the lesser space on your bookmarks bar.
